  2. I first thought Rush... and then was disappointed

    I've just got back from Brundall for the weekend and wanted to take the boat out yesterday but thought better of it like other members it was gusting pretty strong across the river!
  5. I didn't mention the broads when refering to the EA thats a narrow view point. The close season debate is national and so is the licence and so are the funds spent, although I do know they do a lot of wildlife river monitoring in and around the broads as I have dealt with them on this basis. It used to be that way Paul with regional fishing licences but now it is national with the EA
  6. Back to the close season issue I personally would love to see it go as it serves no real purpose on the Broads or rivers and considering it's been removed for all canals and lakes seems somewhat contradictory. If it should stay on the grounds of fish welfare then it should be mandated everywhere along with a boating ban (I'm a boater too!) as a boat can do more damage to a spawning ground then any angler can. A couple of other points to the less informed :- Anglers generate over £20million pounds a year in License fees alone, which is used by the EA for a number of good projects Fish tend not to eat when spawning (and mostly leading up to spawning) therefore an angler will not be catching spawning fish and most likely not near them.
  7. Sorry this place is not for rent... It's my little piece of heaven 👍
  8. Cheers all... I've notified the relevant peeps as its not my boat
  9. Really glad you got it sorted... Nice one 👍
  10. Hi Hylander Yes you do have to get a licence to save (just over a tenner from memory), however at least you know now that you can recover them. Maybe try some other free software first as mentioned above and if you have no luck at least you can use a licenced version of Diskdigger to recover them.
  11. Have a look at diskdigger you can download it and try to see if it can see your data. It worked for me when nothing else seemed to.
  12. The BA will probably launch a National Park purple cucumber for some extra publicity 😀
  13. Thanks for the messages and posts. I've now reset it. I think it resets itself to the lowest position after a communication outage. I'll sort it properly when I can get full access to a pc.
  14. I used to be a spotter at Manchester Airport and used to regularly see the Guppy which was the Beluga's predecessor. I now live not too far from Hawarden and see it pretty rugularly when out and about... Its a strange critter 😯... BTW nice photo 👍
  15. The airbus wings carrier around Hawarden?
  16. I bet you felt better for that Breydon 😂
  17. Had to prise the tray out of the freezer before topping up on vodka!
  18. Did one like this last year but did this one whilst returning from interstellar 19 on a secret galactic mission 😝
  19. Strange...so you didn't bother reading the Hickling Broad update
  20. I also think JM does good work in bringing to our attention these matters and have said that before. I have a differing opinion on this particular clause though and if that's what you are referring to in the quoted text above I don't see it.
  21. I fully understand what you are saying but you are being selective with your words in the proposed amended clause. You have to use maintenance alongside 'improvement and development' (inclusive). So to use your analogy if the Authority decide there is no reasonable need to dredge a particular area surely that CANNOT be argued with any amount of reasonableness to be an improvement or development. I’ve mentioned this a few times as have others am I misreading it?
  22. I thought the navigation area is set out in the BA Act 1988 and can only be changed by a formal process which the BA can propose?
