It’s a grand day here but very gusty and cool in a fresh easterly breeze.
I wish I knew which estate. Come on RSPB tell us. I’ll be along to help cause more disruption to their shoots, far more than half a dozen Buzzard ever could. What was the RSPB playing at? Probably a Royal estate and they didn’t want to loose the ‘R’.
SPB sounds like a sexually transmitted disease. I hope the management….Sorry. Executives of the RSPB all get the pox. Chicken Pox would do but venereal disease or syphilis would be better.
We went a walk this morning and found this poor gull. This is a raptor kill and very fresh. I should have gone out when I woke up but it was awfully chilly. I could have got a close up of a raptor. Not a Buzzard kill, they are too lazy. A Sparrow Hawk is my best guess. And a female one to take a gull, the males are too small I would have thought.
I put the feeders out but as I’m a good three hundred yards from trees or cover I thought it would be a waste of time. Not a bit of it…..the Scottish Sparrow or Siskin as birders call it were soon diving in.
Could Natural England find time to organise the extermination of Siskin? They are chewing yet another set of wiper blades. This a serious safety issue and not one of profit. I could ram one of you with a smeary windscreen. Then all your issue, like the Buzzards would be orphans.
I hope this post doesn’t set up a new ministership for Siskin Elimination. MSE sounds like another disease. Whilst I’m addressing the top echelons of incompetency could I point out that three wiper blade vehicles are discriminated against. Halfords only sell them in twos and my van takes three. Just like the millionaires that find shooting the slowest and daftest bird entertaining, my van feels discriminated against.
Have a good Bank Holiday Weekend and place your Pheasant pens under bushes. The evil Buzzard can’t fly through twigs.
