A Weblog monitoring coverage of environmental issues and science in the UK media. By Professor Emeritus Philip Stott. The aim is to assess whether a subject is being fairly covered by press, radio, and television. Above all, the Weblog will focus on science, but not just on poor science. It will also bring to public notice good science that is being ignored because it may be politically inconvenient.

Those Hebridean hedgehogs again (they get everywhere!).....

For today's 'Home Planet' programme on BBC Radio 4, listen here (if you are in the UK, it is broadcast every Tuesday afternoon at 15.02 GMT on BBC Radio 4; if you are outside the UK, you may still listen to it, online, via the BBC 'Home Planet' Web Page: (a) on the day in question, choose the 'Listen Live' button; or, (b) for one week after the first broadcast, choose the 'Listen Again' button; or, (c) after one whole week, select the relevant date under 'Previous Programmes'.). Today, you get Stotty et al. on those eggcentric hedgehogs of Uist (again!) (See 'The Tale of the Hebridean Hedgehogs', February 15); salmon, lice and wrasse; vinegary comments on cod and chips; and vernalisation! Quite puts a spring in your step! And some very interesting listener-feedback on wind farms! Well! Blow me down!

Philip, in jolly mood as the days lengthen! Not quite lunch - just time for a little something.
