    They are very cute and friendly. Think they are related to raccoons

    Rio Tarcoles, bridge over the river with loads of salt water crocs. Many a person has fallen in. The handrail is very low with lots of road traffic passing by. Made me feel very uneasy

    I put up a bird table in a quiet secluded spot near my home.

    I fill it up once a week and it is always cleaned out. I've seen crows, jackdaws, magpies, wrens, robins, goldfinch,
    and even squirrels at it.

    I once saw a Peregrine Hunting Pigeons in Glasgow City Centre. It flew right through the flock of Pigeons, picked it's target, and WHAM, seconds later had it's meal. It landed in the pedestrian precinct in the Trongate. Once it had rested, it flew away. I watched all of this and loved every second of it, as others were upset about the "poor pigeon". Peregrines have to feed their chicks as well. Nature is SUPERB, and cruel sometimes.

    That's superb mate. Best sea bird EVER. Is March not a wee bit early?, or am I talking nonsense?
