Re: Osprey return

That's the 'Beast from the East' for you. Probably blew the Skuas off course on their journey back here from the Gibraltar area. We're all competing to who sees the first one.

Re: Osprey return

Seven pages and I've contributed nothing. Opened The Shetland Times today and there's a half page devoted to an osprey sighting at Ollaberry, a village on the main island. They're everywhere. Getting like rats! :D Only joking. It's great to see one passing through en route to Norway. Like White Tail...

Re: Hedgehog abuse

Thank you, Marigold, for your thoughtful and courteous analysis. My personal view is in complete agreement with what you have said. Though some things may be upsetting or challenging then so long as people are not personally offensive then this is OK. I find it stimulating that a range of subjects c...

Re: Facebook

I tend to agree, LadyA. I'm not registered with Faceache and don't own a mobile phone. Now I'm sure that there are a thousand reasons for owning one to do with safety and convenience but it irks me that no conventions have grown up regarding the etiquette of using them. They seem to have replaced no...

Re: Double yoked eggs

A bit of a mystery why it happens. Though some people claim that they have hatched twins from such eggs I remain sceptical. This being the case then it can't be an hereditary trait as it could not be passed on. It's years since I've had one (from a Minorca). Certainly the eggs tend to be bigger whic...

Bantams

Can you keep large fowl and bantams together or will the littl'uns be unmercifully bullied? Never kept bantams, hence the question

Re: SOS! What's wrong with Violet?

The trouble with forum is that people live so far apart. It would be lovely if we could all get together, have party and help you throw over the traces, Val. I'm really glad to hear it's healing, though. Yes but that's a blessing. Don't you find that old people are endlessly repetitive, have hair s...
