I got attacked by them on Fair Isle 30+ years ago. When I was up there in the Spring with my missus more recently they were more attracted to her heid (perhaps due to her scotchness) which was excellent for me. Arctic skuas on the other hand are cool as f~ck. Some cruise ship bell end told me to steer well clear of one of them (a pale morph male) as the were "very dangerous" but I told her correctly that he was our pal.

If you’d just said domesticated geese are nasty feckers and left the soppy swan out, I’d have agreed with your original post.

On a serious note, the swans down here are being utterly fecked over by people who think it’s ok to go canoeing or paddle boarding down rivers without a clue about the impact on breeding swans and their territories. This incident happened on my stretch of the Hampshire Avon on Sunday, and remember they are trespassing on the most protected river in England.

Nah, people are even c~ntier than swans.

I have just remembered that I once went to a "swannery" a billion years ago which may have been in Blind's neck (lolololololololol) of the woods. They had a resident feral flamingo at the time.

Abbotsbury at a guess.

Before those kytwatters came through we had four pair* with well defined territories in just a mile and a half of river, an incredibly small area for truly wild swans but the ecology is rich enough to just about support them.

*We lost the cob who had nested in the House Pool for 9 years midway through the laying period. The pen had laid four eggs when he disappeared and sheís just stayed in his territory awaiting his return. No body reported yet and Iíve walked the local power lines but found nothing.

Don't vampires have a thing for virgins? Is this what the whole convoluted story is about?

west country boy 04-06-2020 08:10 PM

Four pairs in a mile and a half is pretty impressive!

You don't have any local short-sighted gamekeepers who can't tell the difference between mute swans and hen harriers?

On your first point, thank you. Itís a perfect example of habitat improvement benifitting more than the target species and Iím a bit chuffed

Point 2 - I'm thinking of gamekeepers or ginger royals who get a bit trigger-happy at the best of times. (There seem to have been more raptor deaths than usual since lockdown even though Harry has been dragged to CA.)

I think you know my views on the illegal killing of raptors, being meat eaters theyíd be right off my quarry list. Plus I love seeing them, spectacular birds.

If I knew a gamekeeper who shot any bird off licence, Iíd report them as would everyone i shoot with. We arenít all irresponsible *****. :)

They have that Napoleon complex... they have no fear. Iíve had them come and hover in front of my face just for walking close to their feeder. Iím convinced they would happily poke my eye out. They are pretty brutal amongst themselves also. Real bullies within their ranks.

Some years ago I had no real choice in being sent to Newport Beach on business.

Being a smoker back then, I was housed in the top floor of some posh hotel that they didnít really clean beyond the dangerous chemical risk signs as you exited the lift.

Iím 10 or 12 floors above ground level and there were hummingbirds willing to take their chance of catching cancer to feed on the balcony flowers, a fantastic sight Iíll never forget.

For a start it blew the supposed maximum height they could detect food according to the rules.

I wasn't cussing you! I also have reservations about the so-called re-wilding of white-tailed eagles and eagle owls and white storks &c. (I will happily cuss the RSPB and "Natural England" though.)

I saw something in the Guardian or Times about a recent increase in raptor killings but my JB Fletcher sleuthing skills have let me down, so this is all I could come up with: https://www.rarebirdalert.co.uk/v2/C...s_id=117285900

I think I've done this before, but I find it annoying that a package will take 10 days to get here because I went with free shipping, but can get it the next day if I pay $8.

Now I hear you so, just pay the $8 if it annoys you. That is not the point, the point is it seems to me that they physically have to hold the package back to make it take 10 days to deliver. Surely to keep packages flowing through the system is easier (and more cost efficient) than holding back stuff?

Even if it is traveling across country by truck (which it is not) rather than by plane, it is only going to take 5 days... always seems odd to me.

I am annoyed that I am no longer annoyed by Rylan Clark-Neal. I used to find him to be an annoying no-mark who only found fame because he was a camp twat on some X Factor or GBT type show that filled some sort of quota a few years ago.

Anyway I heard him on Radio 5 the other week as a guest on some show or other. He was intelligent, very self deprecating, witty, and an extremely entertaining guest.

I'm hoping this will be the story on this item... I'm cutting it fine for my wife's birthday.

Order site said delivery date will be the 16th, then I get a link from them to the FedEx tracking site, and they are saying the 9th which seems more realistic to me.

Is that like 2nd rate comedians being asked about their opinions and make lame jokes about.....football, the 80s, the 90s etc. etc..

Especially when they throw in either....someone who actually doesn't know much about... (football) or is a 'fan' of Man U etc..and thus only thinks they know about football...

...case in point...might be one of them choosing Geoff Thomas as the worst ever England player based on one silly kick (even though he was never on the losing side in an England shirt).

Criticising other people, generally people that have made it much more than the 2nd or 3rd rate comedians have or ever will.

The stupid safari search feature in IOS. Just wasted 10 mins trying to work out how to get rid of the split screen with chrome on one side and safari on the other that I had opened up by accident. Not one of their better ideas tbh.

Also, if I wanted to use safari, I would have selected it instead of chrome in the first place.

Second-Spikers. Such a safe conversational conduit for uninteresting people trying to be interesting and edgy.
Yes it may happen, but people who go on about it remind me of those who rattle on about the favourite in a horse race before the off. Such an easy & comfortable way to be a tin pot Nostradamus and not very insightful at all.

Itís a con

Everything I have ordered online during lockdown has arrived earlier than expected.

Gogglebox is a show here which consists of ordinary people watching select bits of telly from the last week or so, and their reactions and commentary. Itís quite enjoyable because over the course of the series you become familiar with the families and their personalities and some of them are quite funny. Itís just very easy non challenging telly.

The celebrity version is just really fake and unfunny.

That Fevertree advert which ludicrously claims that 3/4 of a g&t is tonic.

If I was your age, I wouldn't want to be reminded about it either

Group outings to the supermarket, 3 or 4 people together, surely some of them should wait outside if thereís a lot of shopping to carry? Selfish feckers.

People not using inter and intra correctly. There's an article on BBC sport repeatedly calling friendlies played with players from the same club "inter-squad friendlies" . It's a BBC article not a 12 year old's blog FFS :wallbash:

Among many thing today, the fact my wife constantly leaves cupboards in the kitchen open.

The Sun TV Mag raising false hopes with a huge picture on the front cover of Michael McIntyre with a sticker over his mouth saying "LOCKED DOWN".

If only - the longer the better.

Can you imagine how many hilarious observations he's got about his kids in lockdown? :S:

Having to renovate a house we renovated a few years back, after allowing my wife's "best friend" to rent it after she split with her husband.

I take it that they are no longer besties. My old man always said never lend to friends and family. Expect not to get it back.

I guess the same goes for renting out your property. Bet you waived a deposit.

Tough luck.

I didn't, the wife did. The "best friend" also owes us 350euro electricity bill.

.

One thing you will never get back from anyone is a book. You lend someone a book because you think they'll enjoy it and when you inquire about it a year or so later they apologetically tell you they've lent it to someone else. Seems to happen to a lot of people.
