    I can, but would it spoil the thread if guessed so early?

    Darn, I'm rubbish at these :eek:

    yes, it's a shoe we found last night, the moss had really gone for it, one in the eye for dirty fly tippers. I love seeing nature encroaching on man for a change ;)

    I remember watching a doc on Chernobyl awhile ago and it was amazing seeing how humanity had b0lloxed up and nature had taken it back.

    Ooh, I didn't realise there was a documentary about the wildlife of Chernobyl, it fascinates me what has happened there, there's supposed to be wolves, bears & massive catfish (not because of the raiation, but because there's no one there to fish for them) there, so much so that a couple of friends & I are planning on going there at some point to see it for ourselves

    I'm trying to remember when and where I watched it but it was a fair bit of time ago. Maybe an anniversary special or something? It was fascinating, seeing the husks of buildings with trees and plants growing through them.

    I did find this whilst trying to track it down: Discovery Channel Chernobyl Life In The Dead Zone - YouTube

    Does make me feel a bit :( about our species though. As soon as people are removed, the rest of the animals and their environment seem to thrive.

    That's the one in the link I posted above, does look good but I don't remember the bits of it I just watched. Everything else I've found so far is more about the actual disaster or the human cost (which are also fascinating and terribly sad).

    I'll bet it was a flipping Newsround special or something, seems to be where I get most of my info from nowadays :eek:

    Bunch of spoil sports.

    Should have let the elderly and partially sighted have a go first, and give us all a giggle.

    FYI, River Monsters recently did an episode at Chernobyl, and Radioactive Wolves is worth a watch if you can get hold of a copy.
