WHO Poll
Q: 2021/22 What competition should we prioritise this season?
a. The league is our bread & butter, so this year let's have a club sandwich
b. We're owed an FA Cup after Gerrard nicked our last one in 06, our name's on it in 22
c. A bye to the League Cup 3rd round gives us a good start, let's make it count
d. The Europa is our best ticket to the Champions League, this is the one
e. What's wrong with you, let's do the lot, has the quadruple ever been done

For WHO's birders
I thought you might like this video.


It's a compilation of different birds singing. Beautiful photography. If you expand the 'title' under the video it gives a list of species and the times they pop up in the video. Most of the species are familiar to us in the UK, but there are some 'exotics' (the cranes - wow, what a noise!)

It was filmed in Belarus. The guy has a channel you can subscribe to.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and maybe it'll take your mind off you-know-what for a few blessed minutes.

Don't know what I've had done without my garden last 18 months. Sit out in it about 4 times more than I ever did before.

There are 2 robins in our street vying for territory, seen them squaring up to each other a few times but not seen them come to blows yet.

Bullet almost completely has his adult feathers (handsome bugger) and has now started singing the song of his people. Plenty of needle between him and the great tits. I am very happy indeed.

Re: For WHO's birders
Last week after putting some bird seed and paint trays of water (pigeons love bathing in them lifting each wing up in turn and so forth, great to watch) peered through the glass back door and a Sparrow Hawk was feasting on a Pigeon (not the first time, they jump on their back pin them down and pluck their feather's one at a time, then eat the whole head all while alive). When disturbed it didn't look too pleased, stared me in the eye, huge evil eyes like a gremlin then flew off, leaving me to clean up what was left of the poor blighter. Nature eh.

If only van Gogh had had Nurse's sunny disposition.

He might have actually sold something for serious money.

I love sunflowers. Always make me smile when I see them. The bees I get in my garden tend to be the ones with the really white fluffy bums.

Re: For WHO's birders
Don't get me wrong, I love wild gardens and wild flowers.

Especially when you get just a single one of a certain variety right bang on the middle of dozens of another type, especially when it's a bright poppy.

Friday night's is the one night of the week I've stopped going down the pub, can't beat takeaways from the corner shop and a cracking episode of gardiners world

'My wildflower front garden has been beautiful and a awash with insects and birds since early spring'

Could've also been posted on this thread :-)


Had a homeing/racing pigeon actually hop through the patio doors into our living room last week.
Had been feeding and watering it for a couple of days previous as it kept landing in our garden. Thought it may have been injured, but was probably knackered.

I agree with that.
My wildflower front garden has been beautiful and a awash with insects and birds since early spring. Loads of butterflies and moths including Cinnabar Moths, Brimstones (planted an Alder Buckthorn hedge last year) and Hummingbird Hawk Moths that love Night Scented Stocks.
Contemplating converting the back garden as well next month.

Re: For WHO's birders
Wild gardens are good. Wild means weeds giving off seeds and providing food and shelter and egg-laying spots for insects. Seeds and insects bring birds and hedgehogs.

I hope the OP is going to insist on birdwatching tales from Croatia from the returning horde.

As compensation for not enforcing a 4-0 scoreline.

On the hillside /cliff opposite my house we sporadically see a kestrel, a vixen with cubs and a family of badgers going about their evening business. Its all rather Potteresque (Beatrix not Dennis).

Thanks for posting. Great footage.

The Golden Oriole and Rosefinch are stunning. Those cranes make a racket!

Re: For WHO's birders
The occasional droppings of a welcome robin are the least of a Londoners concern when considered alongside the dozens of unwelcome Roma, who camped along Park Lane and shat like feral fucking dogs on the pavement and pissed in the gutter - filthy fucking animals
