Hi Bill
Loads of acorns in Essex this year and, where I am, much less Cynipid gall 
wasp damage. Possibly because Epping Forest has been removing Turkey oaks.

I note in this weekend's Sunday Times The former Miss Hosegood responding to 
a question about acorns falling from a neighbour's tree. She nobly avoided 
issuing the obvious advice of "get a life," but it prompted me to realise 
that it's not only round here that Oaks seem to be having a very productive 
season. The Oak tree that hangs over our shed is liberally scattering acorns, 
that land very noisily, and it seems that every Oak I pass has produced a 
similarly massive crop.
Anybody care to comment?
Bill.
