I WAS delighted to read your article about the recent red squirrel survey (Gazette, September 4, “Take it as red, the squirrel is thriving”) and the stability of the red squirrel populations in Cumbria, and particularly the Lake District.

REPORTS from lake users that Windermere is a scene of conflict during summer will come as a surprise to those who rarely venture onto the water or are content to admire it from the safety of the shoreline.

Preston Richard Parish Council fought long and hard for flashing lights and a 20mph speed limit outside St Patrick's Church of England school. They were finally installed two months ago by local authority employees but their location leaves a great deal to be desired.

Reading the proposals of Cumbria County Council to spend £6.8million on roads in Kendal and Ulverston (Gazette, September 25, '£6.8m plan to free up roads') appears at odds with some recent decisions to withdraw subsidies on a number of bus routes then announcing a 50 per cent increase in bus times.

I was interested to read the report article (Farm and Country, August 28, 'Reserve celebrates its osprey success') about the Roudsea ospreys, in which it stated Cumbria is now home to three pairs of nesting ospreys. I assume you are referring to Bassenthwaite, Foulshaw Moss and Roudsea Moss.

Now it's getting dark mid-evening again (hooray!) it's a lot easier to go out star spotting. The Big Dipper - the name we give to the seven brightest stars in Ursa Major, the Great Bear - dominates the northern sky, looking like a huge starry ladle hanging above the fells and trees. Anyone who sees the Big Dipper will also notice a bright yellow-white star to its left.
