Although there will be a couple of minor items tacked on that the end, this post is mainly devoted to a thunderclap and a petition, both regarding an area of woodland that adjoins a Nature Reserve and is under threat from plans by supermarket chain Aldi.

A MESSAGE TO ALDI (AND PLANNING AUTHORITIES)
I feel very strongly that Aldi should accept the initial negative decision, especially given how many supermarkets (including two other Aldis) are located close to this area already. I am a fairly regular customer of Aldi stores in my own part of the world, but that may not remain the case if Aldi do not reconsider their stance over this. I conclude with some advice for all involved in this decision to consider, tendered in the form of a picture created by Anna from a comment I posted on her blog:
Here are some of my recent photographs, before I finish off with a couple of minor items.

Solutions will be in a future post.

Very nice! My favorite shot is the 19th from the bottom with the interesting shadow and light.

Your preservation nature qoute is great but it’s sad that we still need to repeat it so often. What is it the nature destroyers doesn’t get? We need nature!
You are right, and the picture you created based on it is also great, which is why I used it. You are also right that we should not need to use it.
I’m glad my picture can be useful. I hope that we one day can say “well it was good words and good picture, but nowadays the saving nature thinking comes natural for everyone”.
