Deep Country: Five Years in the Welsh Hills
Deep Country: Five Years in the Welsh Hills
by Neil Ansell
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

2.0 out of 5 stars For the birds..., 7 May 2017
A pleasant enough read, but not what I was expecting or hoping for. When other readers point out that the middle 9/10ths of the book are in fact virtually lists of birds seen and repetitive description of such, they are right. I feel that the cover blurb etc. doesn't make that clear enough. Great if you're a bird watcher, though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not waterproof., 20 Nov. 2015
This review is from: Snugpak Bivvi Bag (Sports)
I've used one of these occasionally over the years. Be warned, this bivvi bag is not waterproof for any length of time. It's fine under a tarp, to fend off the odd splash, but expose it to even light rain and you will be sleeping wet. It has the advantage of being very light, packs down small, and has just about enough room to wriggle in. But it will not keep you dry. I might add that in general I have found other Snugpak items to be extremely good value... but not this bag.

Have been using these for sometime, on a daily basis, they work very well. The longer handle makes them very manageable (I have arthritis in my hands).

I can't really recommend this recording - if listening with headphones it sounds like it's being played in in a gale...

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the trick., 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Everything works as described - the menus aren't great - it takes a bit of working out in order to not be cycling thru every track on the card, but it is possible. Pleased with it all in all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 19 Feb. 2014
This review is from: White Tiger [DVD] (DVD)
Picked this up without researching it beforehand. It really is not worth the time, especially if you've any prior knowledge of tanks and tank battles. Not a good story, average to poor direction, it kinda just.... peters out....to an ending? Basically, it's a fantasy tank ghost story. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Also, 'official Russian entry to the Academy Awards' just shows that playful Russian sense of fun that we all know and love.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great, while the bulbs last..., 7 Feb. 2012
After 4 weeks of use, one bulb (out of 4) has stopped working and another is going dull. At this rate it will be an 'ex' heater in another month. Apart from that, does the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 11 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Drive [DVD] (DVD)
Absolutely loved this film on the big screen, and I suspect it will lose nothing on the small box. Cool, slow, intelligent with heart and soul - but if you want slam-bam explosions, a pounding soundtrack, and nano-second edits then there are other films that will satisfy you more. All the players do a great job here. A word of caution - when it gets violent, it pulls no punches.
