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.

Yes, Sock. I understand what is likely to happen to all the global warming fucknuts, but what about the original parakeets?

Re: For WHO's birders

Like most invading species, if you feed them they will stay. I guess they will eventually evolve to the terrain and climate and morph into some kind of amazing pigeon/seagull/parakeet mutant that begs, steals and fucking caws its head off at you as it does it, and accuses our birds of parrotphobia if they complain

I'm quite surprised that their presence in Europe hasn't been jumped upon by the global warming faction - when I was growing up in the 60s, parakeets were only associated with tropical jungles and real pirates of the Caribbean. And zoos.

Been working over in Teddington the last month or two so staying away from home during the week which I hate.

But the site is right on the edge of Bushey Park and the place is absolutely over run with parakeets, I've seen them before in big numbers in some strange parts of London, but never in this quantity, its insane, they completely dominate the avian gangs round here.

That is crap Nurse - It really helps me.
My employer has put the office building up for sale so will be home for the duration.

I'm gutted to be back in the office full time now, because I know I'm going to miss so much.

It is rather wonderful.
The Jackdaws have decided it is still a bit cold for this nest malarkey. Give it a couple of weeks.

Re: For WHO's birders
Best site for bird songs and calls is "Xeno Canto", there is also an app.

Did a whistle stop couple of hours at Fordwich and Bockhill yesterday first light, and saw the much reported Dusky Warbler and Hume's Leaf Warbler.

Both picked out by their call.

Re: For WHO's birders
Tell you what, I am really enjoying this Circle of Life caper. It seems like yesterday his harassed parents left him in my garden. He was a typically gormless looking robin juvenile, all scruffy and speckly (though unfeasibly large) and he set about asserting himself in my garden AND in my sitting room. He's mad as cheese.

Bullet has a WIFE 😍

All day they've been together in the garden, playing and skittering about, and sharing a dish of mealworms.

As I type this, I can hear him singing.

Re: For WHO's birders

I can't advise if your phone's a crApple.

But on Android I use BirdUp and BirdNerd.

These are good for birds you'd commonly encounter in the British Isles.

There are quite a few of these types of apps now, and they're a work in progress. The accuracy isn't brilliant, but it's better than nothing.

Also, make sure you don't accidentally download one for American birds or something.

Re: For WHO's birders
much to my shame...I have a birdsong app on my phone...last summer I could not get the bloody thing to identify a particular bird warbling away.
I went onto the house to find the 'warbler' was my daughters' bread maker chirping away (OK Nursey,the secrets out now)
