@BadCarrot I think they probably are quite used to it, it's become a bit of a tourist spot in recent years. I'm there nearly an hour a day at times and always have food so I suspect that's helping 😁 strange they don't like J though
I can't remember the last time I saw an owl! I love the head bobbing thing.
Saw a sparrow hawk take out a finch the other day, it's targeting the bird feeders in one of my neighbours gardens
@BadCarrot I've been really trying to think of whether I'd seen one out of captivity before and I don't think I have. The size of them really took me aback enough to look them up and i imagine it would have most other times too but idk.
Some people have been pretty stunned by the pics/that I get to see them so close. I kind of am too tho a bit, grew up thinking they extremely rare and it's hard to shake even with them next to me for some reason
@BadCarrot raven numbers are apparently doing a lot better nationally but certain areas are booming atm.
Would be interested to see if it's related. I know buzzards raid their nests so doesn't seem implausible
@BadCarrot oooh I did not know this
I went into town today and saw loads of them over the fields and trees. Weirdly large amounts. They're obviously doing well here
Note for Murican buddies:
A Buzzard in the UK is in the same genus as Red-Tailed Hawk in the USA, so not like an American style Buzzard, which is a Vulture.
@fireglow nah they've got a nest in a grove not far away, likely just territorial/being protective of their space
@BadCarrot what's with birds of prey looking like they're wearing clothes
Like kestrels and waistcoats or condors and rollnecks
@BadCarrot this one turns up quite a lot, or I presume it's the same one, the ravens seem to be the only ones to take exception (with the ducks swimming for cover obviously)
@BadCarrot lmfao yep
Ravenposting time. This lil comrade emerged with a swan feather this morning, seemed mega pleased with itself about it #birbposting
@C_Chell The instance only emerged very recently and this stuff is all that I know to have come from it. It's been mentioned a lot and all because of follow spam only
@C_Chell loads of people are getting it atm, best to block them
