WHO Poll
Q: 2019/20 With seven games to go will West Ham stay up
a. Our demise was sealed when the idiots on the Board appointed Moyes, we're down
b. Despite the efforts of Moyes and the players, we will stay up by the smallest of margins
c. I'm beyond caring & couldn't give two hoots either way

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.

“ Look at a goose or a chicken and you are looking into the past.”

Doesn’t that go for every living creature?

I imagine a T. rex in the colours of a blue tit, balanced on a bottle of milk.

Of course, it's quite a large bottle.

Birds are the surviving descendents of Dinosaurs and the oldest ones (Galliformes and Anatidae - chickens, geese, pheasants, swans, ducks) are very close to their ancestors.

Re: For WHO's birders
It seems that T. rex had feathers.

It also had the largest eyes of any known land animal, which probably meant it had extremely keen eyesight (the other alternative is that it had excellent night vision), and it could run as fast as a human sprinter, but for much longer.


Unfortunately, I've been unable to find anything about the colours of its feathers.

Bernd Heinrich has written some great books on bird behavior.

I’d start with Maine Woods and go onto The Mind of the Raven.

Reading something that tells me greenfinches and great tits are everywhere, including well within the Arctic Circle.

Saw a couple of Kingfishers and a red kite while fishing last week. Amazing sight.

Managed to top 2 magpies in my mates garden with air rifle, awful , vicious bastards, they kill so many young chicks/eggs.

Played magpie call on YouTube and the fuckers come flying in from all directions.

Re: For WHO's birders
I not sure if anyone took it in, but I felt the disapproval of WHO’s birders when I said I scared the starlings away from roosting in my pine trees and they went to my neighbours, where they made awful noise and shat everywhere. I was at my neighbours having a beer last night and I was a bit shocked that he cut down his big mature pine trees, just to get rid of the starlings!
I feel some righteous in my approach to the problem!

On the other hand, if Alfie proved to have used a combination of slaps that ensured immediate death in less than 1 minute as animal welfare regulations indicate and he then proceeded to make a pigeon pie that would make it acceptable behaviour.
I think he could still meet Sold in heaven.

Re: For WHO's birders
Alfie, there are two ends to this story. One makes you a liar, the other one makes you a bird flu-spreading R number.

Either way, it's best you disappear sharpish boi.

Re: For WHO's birders
A pigeon attacked me today.
I had no choice but to slap it do death.

Re: For WHO's birders

About 2 years ago whilst out in the sticks I came across a car load of youth who'd got out their car after it had struck a pheasant.

Poor pheasant needed despatching, I did the job. Asked them if they wanted it, they declined, so kept it for LMH senior.

One of them cheekily asked me for a tenner when I said it would go in the pot.

Re: For WHO's birders
In my last but one six-a-side before lockdown, a goose flew straight into the fence surrounding the pitch.

It was clearly seriously injured.

One bloke burst out laughing, and immediately got stick from most of the others, including people in other games.

A group of people then stood around the goose as it staggered to its feet, but still looked in a bad way. They all gave off this caring vibe, but noone actually cared enough to do anything, either wring its neck to put it out of its misery, or call a vet and offer to pay for their services.

Since I too didn't care enough to do either of these things, I abstained from the caring display.

I sloped off, since it was near the end of the game, and it was clear it wasn't going to continue.

Presume the thing died, but forgot to ask at the next, and so far, final game.

Just seen a barn owl.
Flew over the garden skimming the fences about 8 feet in front of me :)

My Jackdaws flew the nest just now, two fledgelings this time.
They fly surprisingly well but the landings are definitely crashing with style right now.
