    Many of you of a certain age will remember the Ladybird books of our youth. I was always rather taken with the "What to look for" series that showed the changing seasons of the year. They are interesting as they show many species of flora and fauna that were once commonplace in the English countryside.

    To recall these bucolic times here are a few reminders of the illustrations contained in the book.

    Wonderful though the illustrations are the book is in serious need of updating as it makes no mention of the shape shifting sheep that I saw in the fields above Clunton this morning.

    I think that shafting ship is an offence - sorry I am dyslexic
