Conkers

The World Conker Championships are in danger this year as the conkers are maturing too early.  Local Northamptonshire conkers are normally used but they may have to bring them in from elsewhere this year.

Re: Conkers

This is quite serious as it's a tradition going back centuries.
One of the more prominent signs of climate change and something for scientists to take note of.

Re: Conkers

Whilst I accept that it's climate change related and suspect it's down to a shift southwards of the depression track, meaning that the weather is damper throughout the summer, I suspect that it's rain related rather than temperature?
