    Apologies for cat spam in wildlife thread but I thought I’d share their true nature. Amazing animals. Love them to bits

    Doing a dive trip to Bahamas in a few weeks, will be in open water with Tiger Sharks, great hammerheads, bull, reef and lemon sharks. I’ll get a lot of pics and share them on here.

    This is Emma, she is the largest female in the region. she weighs in at over 1000kg Really hope to meet her on the dives

    thanks man. I can’t wait to be honest. I’ve spent a lot of time in Red Sea with scalloped hammerheads. 40/50 strong 40m deep off Egyptian coast. No bother. Tigers on the other hand are a new experience

    I would if I had a garden mate.

    Still not seen any waxwings or fieldfares yet. They have disappeared this year.
    I've seen one single redwing, which is a poor show too.
    Thrushes and song thrushes non existent too.
    Too many paved over gardens these days has driven them all away out into the sticks.

    Well here is my neat list for by RSPB Garden Birdwatch done yesterday

    18 House Sparrow
    4 Blue *
    1 Great *
    3 Starlings
    2 Magpies
    1 Wood Pigeon
    5 Blackbirds
    2 Carrion Crows
    1 Robin
    1 Song Thrush
    1 Goldcrest
    1 Coal *
    1 Blackcap

    Yes very pleased with that, I was a bit surprised no Dunnock or Wren, but still a very pleasing list with the ever so handsome male Blackcap stealing the show. I also recorded 42 Curlew fly over my house and Herring Gulls, Jackdaws and a further 17 Starling but can not be included as they did not land in my garden. I had Fat balls out, peanuts and a halved apple which the Blackbirds loved.
