Re: Can you recommend some waterproof gloves?

For really wet weather I bought some Held marigold type over gloves for around £12. They have grippy palms and, on the few occasions I wore them, they worked well. They are long though but flexible.

Re: Digital bridge camera info please

I’ve got the Panasonic four thirds with a superzoom. Cost me around £600 or so secondhand but it is light, easy to carry and a great camera. Also a Panasonic TZ90 compact, which easy equally brilliant. Under £300 I think. If you’re anywhere near West Sussex, look up Park Cameras near Burgess Hill. h...

Thanks - I did see it.

Re: Covid 19 Coronavirus

Pointing at no-one in particular, There should be a ban on hindsight comments, even with a disclaimer at the beginning. Every country started this in reactive mode so had to hope for the best with their way of dealing with it. UK, Sweden, France and Spain, in particular, haven’t come out smelling of...
