One of the nice things about Pembrokeshire is that the Red Kites are proper Brit birds and not those EU immigrants in the Chilterns.

Best get ready to kick em out then 😎

The sooner we send them back to where they came from the quicker our Crows can get their jobs back cleaning up the M40 roadkill.

Animals including the owl usualy kill for food and they don't cheat. Pathetic weedy humans call it " Sport " blowing some magnificent beast away with a bloomin great gun. The difference is significant.

Tell that to my son, he has recently lost several lambs to foxes, and they were just killed, no attempt to eat them, or drag them back to their den. They do it because they can.

 

He does not condone fox hunting, and tries to use electronioc scaring devices but if one is seen worrying sheep or lambs it risks being despatched with a gun.

Hence why I put usualy because foxes are well known for their mannerisms. I have no problem with shooting by farmers thats absolutely fine, its the jumped up wallies in red jackets and all that nonsense I have no time for.

Here's a pic of a bird I took a couple of years ago... A Turtle Dove....once very common in the UK but now with all the 'extermination' going on in Malta during migration season, they are few and far between in the UK. I've managed to see (and photo) one a year for the last 4 years, but that has not been easy.

I've only just recovered. Nearly had a heart attack at the end of that game. Now, what were we talking about .....oh yes, barred chests and sparrow sandwiches.

Anyone want a sparrow butty?

If they're urban house sparrows, will it be a town class butty?

No, much prefer the tree variety. Here's a tree sparrow I took earlier.

Anyone interested in calling them vermin or condoning blood sports can accompany me to the car park.

Dogging?
