Woke up this morning to lots of Blue Tits and Goldfinch
in the garden and the Blue Tits were checking out the nest
boxes which haven't been used for 3 years so fingers crossed
for this year, also 2 Mistle Thrush and Blackbird were regular
I then took a trip to a local wood and got 3 sightings of Barn Owl
which I was chuffed about and a few Chaffinch, I then got in the
car and had a trip to Ogden where it was manic with cars, so walked
over the fields towards a boggy Back Lane and the Plantation on the
lookout for Goldcrest which I found along with Chaffinch, Bullfinch,
Pheasant and a Sparrowhawk flew just in front of me, but then the day
got spoilt by a certain birdwatcher who was too handy with his phone
instead of approaching me, you know who you are, I hope your proud
of yourself NOT. Where I'm from you'd be known as a P---K.
and how I broke every rule in the book is beyond me when I was sat in
one secluded spot, when it suits seems to fit the local bird gang as I know
they've all been in this certain place umpteen times and this place has an
adventure playground ( HELLO ) so I'm sure the birds are used to it.
So get your heads out of your arses as I wouldn't do anything to disturb
or upset any kind of wildlife, it seems the so-called experts are allowed
to do anything but if your a newbie its always wrong, so I'd advise any
youngsters or new people interested in birding around these parts to stick
to your IPads or go to a footie match coz you'll deffo not be made welcome.
and by the way wildlife is for everyone to enjoy not just the people that
have been at it years, advice might be whats needed not bitchiness.
God I'm fuming and sorry to anyone reading this who's not involved but
it really is pathetic. RANT OVER.
