This goldcrest was darting in and
out of our camelia hedge on Wednesday.

Goldcrests (along with firecrests) are our smallest native bird, about the size of a baby blue tit.

Staplefield Anorak
is a privately-run, not-for-profit website.

Occasional attempts are made to forecast the weather for certain local events. It should be noted that my only qualification for this is a slightly
unhealthy interest in the weather, and in rain in particular.

Current weather is reported every 10 minutes from an automatic Davis Weatherstation in my garden in Staplefield. It is not sited very
scientifically and is sheltered from the west & northwest, which leads to wind reports which may not represent those experienced elsewhere
in the village. The site is approximately 300ft (91m) above sea level.
Other readings should be fairly accurate, although they should not be relied on for anything more than general interest. UV readings are
definitely not accurate and should be ignored.

Other pages on the website depict recent weather graphically and another, the level of water in our well (which may give some indication of groundwater levels). There is a photographs page which is updated every few days. I either post pictures of the village or of wildlife
and nature around the village. There is a Village Notice Board page where I post information that has been sent to me and
may be of local interest.

I always welcome feedback, so please use the contact me link if you would like anything added, or removed, from the site, or to send in any
photograph that you think suitable for publication. I also welcome general comments, praise, quotes and weather-related jokes, funny or not.
