Man, I wish we had that much snow. A heavy shower on Monday left a 10cm (4" ) layer - the most we have seen this winter Shock No winter or a real one please, not hanging between seasons for six months ... but that's what the current climate change models predict for Finland Sad

I am glad we don't have any snow here at all, and I would leave if we ever had that much, but then I'll probably leave anyway. Kahis, was the bird watching better than usual in Finalnd this year because of the mild winter, we normally get one or two groups of Finnish birders down to the lake in Winter, but this year we had none.

I've heard that the Latest climate change models indicate a mild mediterean climate for Suomi in less than 30 years! This might be the most extreme prediction but it seems Finland is the place to be in the year 2038!

Stay where you are Kahis!Grin
Best regards,

There's a catch in this plan: the weather may get warmer, but the days won't get any longer. And much of the predicted warming comes from increasing cloud cover (less radiative loss into space), which means even less sun.

So, welcome to the Finland in 2038, if you love 18-hour cloudy nigths and endless rain at +2C Frown

For the record, this winter was the warmest since year 1900 (older records aren't accurate enough) by quite a margin. The south coast never got officially into winter, we passed directly from fall to spring...

One advantage (Sad) of a snowy winter is that it lessens the pain of spending thousands of $$ to go to the Bahamas for a week. Got home yesterday, snowing again today. As of March 10 my local area has had 320cm of snow. Perhaps any snow lovers should consider living in Maritime Canada, snowy winters, hot summers.

Me and Matt teaching at the Dipterist's Forum Tachinid Fly Identification workshop Smile It was a really well-attended and well-received event and was as fun for us as it was for the attendees, I think! Grin

There is a fly under my microscope and a box of them next to Matt (Nikita might even recognise the box Wink). The Sainsbury's box is how I carry around all the books/keys and equipment I might need - and the red box is Matt's mounting/pinning gear Smile

Jorge,
I was there and there were probably THOUSANDS of fly specimens there as well. This was an excellent and thoroughly enjoyable workshop. Thanks to Matt & Chris for guiding us through the Tachinids. Grin

that is nothing. Pfft (joking Wink) You should experiment when a horse push you to the margin of a river... as it happens to me - I was trying to find Hippoboscidae, Oestridae, and Hipodermatidae. The horse was being agressive, because I was ocupping its territory.

It would be funny to see Dima measuring strength with the head of the goat. Grin
The goats are aggressive only in mating season, I think.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
