Weatherwatch: heatwave brings death and civil unrest 20 Jul 4:30pm Weatherwatch: heatwave brings death and civil unrest
The dry and hot summer of 1911 drove Londoners to paddle in the Serpentine while, in the north, mills closed for lack of power The long hot summer of 1911 is credited with changing fashions, with women shedding whalebone corsets and brassieres becoming the rage. Edwardian aristocrats are said to have taken up nude tennis at their country estates, although at the ever more crowded seaside resorts men and women still used bathing machines towed into the sea. The sexes were kept segregated in case any flesh was exposed.

Formerly extinct ibis taught to migrate by following light aircraft 20 Jul 11:00am Formerly extinct ibis taught to migrate by following light aircraft
Birds bred in captivity are led on their three-week migration south from Germany by human ‘foster parents’ in light aircraft Leaning out of an ultralight aircraft, Corinna Esterer turns toward a flock of peculiar black birds soaring just a few metres away. “Come, come ibis,” she yells through her megaphone. Drawn by Esterer’s voice, the birds dart to the aircraft, and follow it to a field overlooking Lake Constance in southern Germany. Once on the ground, the ibis flock to Esterer. To the birds, the young woman is their parent. For more than 300 years, the northern bald ibis has been extinct in the wild in central Europe, with small populations surviving only in zoos. But recently, it has celebrated a slow but steady comeback thanks to human foster parents who have shown the birds how to migrate south by leading the way in ultralight aircraft.

Counting crows: Vancouver college maps thousands of attacks 20 Jul 4:32am Counting crows: Vancouver college maps thousands of attacks
Tool launched in response to dive-bombing birds documents 2,500 attacks since 2016 It was a crow fiercely protecting its nest – and repeated complaints of it dive-bombing and swooping – that prompted the idea. “Just about every day someone would come in and say, ‘I got smacked in the back of the head, or Mary got smacked in the back of the head,’” said Jim O’Leary, a teacher at Langara College in Vancouver, Canada.
