Channel 5 logo - 2011Just to remind everyone that “Loch Lomond: A Year in the Wild” is on Channel 5 tonight at 8:00pm.

It’s a documentary series about the wildlife of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park in Scotland, filmed across one year. The winter is mild and wet, which is good news for some but bad news for others. Red deer are forced to higher ground, salmon have gone six months without food, mountain hares turn a conspicuous white, and squirrels kick their own young out of the nest.

Looks like the Killearn phone exchange, has been upgraded! Sure, before we could only get ADSL Max, so speeds of up to 8 Mbps. Now it also lists WBC ADSL 2+, with speeds of up to 17 Mbps…

It’s not fibre broadband, which give you speeds of up to 76 Mbps, but it’s a good start!
