@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 馃榿 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

thot crime boosted

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)

They absolutely bodied a buzzard today. I thought someone might have been nearby since they all flew off, turned out they were mobbing it

Ravenposting time. This lil comrade emerged with a swan feather this morning, seemed mega pleased with itself about it

The mum flew over in a hurry again, started attacking everything (older babies included) and hoarding the food ready to fly but back the lil babs spotted her and made their way across a bit. There's only two but fair play she's already managed to get three to adulthood this year

@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
