Re: Not quite an Osprey

Have they ever been known to nest on the islands? Indeed they have Marigold and only here in the whole of the UK. They bred here in the late 60s until the early 70s. Unfortunately the dominant male drove all his sons away and when he died of old age he left three or four females laying clutches of ...

Wonderful! Did you take the photo? Where do you think it came from?
No I didn’t. A fellow islander did. We imagine it came from Norway. It stayed for four days during which it caught and ate a rabbit. Then left.

LadyA, struck down with illness yet you cleared out the old tomatoes, made chutney and made Christmas puddings. Id love to see what you manage when you’re firing on all cylinders!

Re: Wet droppings (grey green)

Now I usually refrain from commenting on threads such as these because I have very little to say. Now I realise that one can become very attached to animals and want to do the best for them. Also good stockman ship is essential and if you can’t offer that then you shouldn’t be keeping animals. Havin...

Controlled immigration does not mean no immigration. I’d agree about our home grown disaffected youth. A real problem.

I think Brexit was largely a protest vote by a country fed up with austerity, fed up with the government, and wanting to believe that any kind of change would be for the better, fuelled by false promises of a return to prosperity, millions for the NHS etc. So you don’t think that concerns about unc...

Re: A pity my Poppy couldn't be there!

Wow. Thats both detailed and spoken with commitment. I like to think I could repudiate every point you make except for the first one which is factually correct. The referendum was advisory rather than legally binding. However I think it would be a bad day for democracy if having sounded out public o...

Re: A pity my Poppy couldn't be there!

We’ll have to agree to differ on that big question then! But the thing that really p****s me off is this demand for a “people’s vote”. What was the last one then? A chimpanzees vote? A cauliflowers vote? Show me a remoaner and I’ll show you a latent fascist. It’s called democracy. Oh, we don’t like ...
