Saw a feckin peacock at the side of the road yesterday!
Yesterday while sitting in my garden armed with Scrumpy Jack,i saw a cool female Sparrowhawk fly over my garden.
Tomorrow me and a good pal are doing an ultra dawn outing,leaving the house at 3am,searching for hunting Owls and Birds Of Prey,cannot wait,its a really cool forest and moorland are!
Did get out at 3am,no birds of prey or owls,except a few buzzards,but i did find a Great White Egret,what a stonking bird!
Looks like someone has just told him the pies are warm.:smiley-laughing002:
There's a hawk of some kind that floats high above my house, it makes the seagulls radge.
So far I've seen it or another catch a mouse, murder a pidgeon and kill a baby seagull.
All from the view of my back window :smiley-laughing002:
I hear them, but I rarely see them. * ninjas.
Don't see too much. Most of my family is from Barra so I always used to see basking sharks, dolphins and the odd whale up there. Saw a Fin Whale once. Always wanted to see an orca in the wild. I know they're up there but they're pretty rare.
Other than that eagles and deer are the only things I can think of.
Saw an American Bald Eagle dive after some prey when i was in Alaska for my honeymoon.
Normally spot a herron or two when fishing my local canal, braw looking birds so they are.
...oh aye and fish aswell, i usually see them dangling on the end of my hook...
Might be a dumb question... what are those called in Scotland?
I normally call them irritating little *, other folks call them Midgies.
So that's something different from a mosquito then?
Yeah, Midgies can't give you Malaria. They appear in swarms that you don't see until you're standing underneath said swarm or you've just rode through one on your bike..then the following day you're covered in little red, itchy spots where they've been sooking on your blood
Here in the Netherlands we cal em Muggen and a whole list of ugly words.
Pair of calling Peregrine over my house last night just after the BBQ!
Id guess from your use of the word "radge" youre from Edinburgh, so id guess its a buzzard, as i doubt the smaller hawks could take a baby seagull, unless it was a small young one.
(unless you meant to say "rage"!)
Id love to see a Peregrine Falcon....but they arent too common in central Scotland.I think there are more of them in central London than anywhere!
Saw a peregrine swoop down in grangemouth. What a sight. Few years ago though.
Aye? Id love to see that.Apparently they can get up to 200mph at full speed on a dive!
