It most certainly is a mast year Tim.  In the "old days" they were reckoned 
to occur every four years or so, but despite Mr Trump's scorn of climate 
change there is no doubt that natural climate rhythms have altered and it 
seems that natural events are less "regular".
The old adage about English weather still applies - if you don't like it, 
wait a minute!

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.
