At this rate the outer bush of healthy growth will have completely swamped the bit in the middle that we are interested in, and we won't know whether this whole project has been a success or not!

So with the kind help of Mr Pinto Nick using his London for transport satellite and it being EARTH DAY we did this quick picture if you look really hard you may make out the sheep and grass .

As a member of Surrey Club I deny all knowledge of this!

PS A burning question that I have is could you let us know if Pinto is all sewn up in his nether regions unlike the sheep?
