The day it rained crabs and frogs

Unusual Weather Events. Can it rain cats and dogs and what about a blue moon?   Ian Currie is an author, editor and speaker where he has appeared on BBC TV and BBC Sussex & Surrey radio and is a fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society.

Falls of coal and coke; crabs and frogs hurtling from the skies and even the proverbial raining cats and dogs.  Hail as big as grapefruits and bizarre ball lightning, the Moon and Sun turning blue and wonderful circles, arcs and pillars adorning the heavens.  These are not figments of a vivid imagination but are examples of real, live weather events.

The Knepp Rewilding Project

Penny Green is an Ecologist and will give us a Talk on the Knepp Castle Estate, which comprises 3,500 acres of heavy weald clay in West Sussex.  Though farmed intensively since WW2, the farm rarely made a profit.  Rewilding has turned this around and the farmland is now profitable.
