You wouldnt tollerate Cowboy builders in your home, so why tollerate "Cowboy Birders" on your patch . . .
If you have a spare few hours you could read this:-
A very well respected NW birder is on a mission to find out who a bunch of muppets are, who flushed huge numbers of waders from their HT roost during the big freeze up this January.
The same group went on later that same day to harrass a Skylark struggling to feed in an ice free area.
This outraged local birder has taken the brave step of posting images of these @#%£&@#~ ~&%£&%$ (people) onto the BirdForum.
But what is even more interesting is that websites owner, appearing in name only as "Steve", is happy to let the images remain !
imho THIS SENDS A CLEAR MESSAGE TO ALL THE SELFISH ARSEHOLES OUT THERE, INCLUDING THOSE USING THAT WEBSITE WHO DONT PUT THE WELFARE OF BIRDS FIRST.
I take back Everything (well almost everything) i said about "TURDFORUM".
Hats off to this person for bringing this ongoing & increasing problem into wider circulation & the BirdForum boss for allowing .
Hopefully our Sheriff & his Deputy's wont need to upload many "Wanted" posters of these kinda Cowboy Birders round these here parts . . .
