Haven't been bitten but a little fox did come over and investigate what I was doing in the back garden at 3am. He/she came within about 10 feet and sat down and stared for about five minutes then wandered back off into the night. No food here.

Avon skin so soft will keep the midgies at bay

Hear all sorts of rustling at night im sure its the pine marten which comes out for jam sandwiches during the day but approach the neighbours shed at night and you can hear a growling coming from it :)

My Dad lives in the Highlands and has seen Pine martens around his place.

Nasty, nasty little critters if cornered apparantly.

Once while stargazing I was abducted by aliens, impregnated and gave birth (Am male) to an alien/human hybred. This was while playing Sims 2 though. (My character had a lovely 10" meade lx200, I was very jealous!)

I once got bitten on the gluteus maximus whilst star gazing last summer; something must have crawled up my shorts. I was wearing my g-string at the time. The bite swelled up so much it was uncomfortable sitting down for a few days..

I'm sure I just heard the thud of 1000 amateur astronomers simultaneously falling backwards off their swivel chairs... :)

there's virtually nothing (barring an anaphylactic shock) that can harm you seriously in the UK if it bites/stings you. Adder is probably the only one if you exclude standing on a bee/wasp nest and a mass attack.

spider bite is very unlikely but some do. could have been any number of things really - fly, wasp, bee, shield bug (heteroptera) but hard to say really.

hope you feel better soon whatever it was!

Indeed - three gold stars, m'dear.

A little odd but they released a few really great tracks. The National Express line about an **** the size of small country is something I will take to the grave...

Jamespels, The most apt for this time of year has to be The Pop Singer's Fear of the Pollen Count. Neil Hannon is very talented, they were such a great act in the day...

Ah, the horrors of summer temperatures ... it's much more comfortable when it's cold enough to freeze the bugs into immobility.
