STOP PRESS: Jim Perrin posts again as DrudwyBranwen

Those readers who followed our recent thoughts as to the near-certainty of author, Jim Perrin, using as his latest pseudonym ‘DrudwyBranwen’ may be interested to read the comment which he posted after Paul Evans’ latest, and really very good entry in the Guardian Country Diary, 29/7/2014.
