An evenings Peace & quiet - The World Cups GR8 !

For some unknown reason many "Birders" seen to switch off come June.

How come ?

They obviously dont realise Its by far THE best month to be out & about.


Having the World (football) Cup on the TV on an evening is an added Godsend

Makes an evenings birding sheer bliss.

Hardly a sole to be seen nor a noise to be heard,
no scum, no moto-X-ers, no bounding dogs, no guns.



Tommy Noddy - hes gorra grit big heed & little body

Watch football on TV on a flat calm June evening - no thanks

Support England in the World - i was intending to . . .

We had a Union Flag in the front winda - but ive took it down & wiped my @rse on it.

Theyre like the rest of the Country - Style & Hype over Substance & Effort - a f@ckin laughing stock.

IF you are priveledged enough to be playing for your Country & you cannot even be arsed to sing your National Anthem then f@ck you & f@ck off.

Highlights of a tour of the local patch last night revealed :-

Barn, Little, Tawny & Long-eared Owls

Quail, Cuckoo, Green Woodpecker

Woodcock, Red legged Partridge, Grasshopper Warbler

Roe Buck, Hare, Fox, Noctule Bats

and Peace & Quiet.



set up to watch Little Owls,
only to find the Barnies have moved to a new nest hole this year.
In & out with prey every 5 mins.

The Littles bill clacking when he landed too close, & going beserk when a Fox ran up what appeared to be a vertical rock wall.



i Wonder what score it is . . . ?
