Here's a little snippet from Wednesday nights Starling murmuration http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XZlUTZeOuY&list=UUpH3LL-d4mQI9to9dORF-kg&index=1&feature=plcp. Recent estimates suggest we have around 22,000 Starlings roosting on the reserve. With thousands of continental Starlings arriving into Britain on a daily basis this number is only going to get bigger and bigger. If you would like to observe this magnificent natural phenomenon why not come along to one of our Soup and Starlings events during November.

The Quest to rolex replica One of the first visionaries to predict test-tube meat, you'll be surprised to learn, was Winston Churchill. Back in 1931, before he became Prime Minister, rolex replica wrote a magazine article about rolex replica progress in which he predicted that by 1981, "we shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium" [replica watches uk]. He was a little off on the time frame, obviously. It wasn't until 2001 that a bioengineer named Morris Benjaminson rolex replica and colleagues at New York's Touro College took chunks of fresh muscle tissue from a goldfish and immersed them in a vat of swiss replica watches liquid of fetal bovine serum. By doing that, the researchers found they could cause the still-living muscle cells to divide and produce more muscle cells; they were able to add about 14 percent worth of hublot replica flesh on the chunks. Benjaminson actually tried frying the fake fish in olive oil flavored with lemon, garlic and pepper and showed the result to colleagues, but nobody got up the nerve to actually try a bite [cartier replica].
