Quote from: paruses on December 15, 2021, 08:38:00 AMHave you @Mr Eggs ? At various reserves I've only found them to be slightly territorial bores rather than anything else. The ones who've exhausted their capacity for spending on Leica and Swarovski and so gone into photography are worse. They get shitty when you turn up to a patch to have a look because it takes them so long to set up with their massive 8 foot lenses and tripods that take up the area of a new build that they love to blame anyone else for a bird fucking off before they've filled their 256gb card up with one shutter press.
Quote from: purlieu on December 15, 2021, 06:21:47 PMYeah, on the whole birders tend to be a decent bunch and are usually ok to chat and help you out if necessary. There are certainly tedious snobs about, but they're very few and far between.Gull people are scary. My dad's writing a book about birds in Leicestershire with his mate who's a gull guy. Lovely bloke, but he spends hours just watching huge flocks through his binoculars, trying to find different variants of lesser black backs and stuff. He even chooses his holiday locations based on what gulls they have there.

Quote from: DoesNotFollow on December 26, 2021, 10:35:50 AMThis week we've heard birds - likely robins and/or blackbirds - singing in the middle of the night where we live. It's a fairly built up area but I can't say we've noticed it happening before.We've travelled to my partner's parent's house for Christmas which is a little more rural (still on a street though) and last night we heard various birds singing almost throughout the night. Again not something we've noticed happening before.Anyone know why this might be? Combination of street lights, Xmas lights and a mild winter was our thoughts.
Quote from: paruses on December 26, 2021, 11:11:50 AMDon't know but I have to take a poorly dog out each night usually around 3 and last couple of nights have noticed exactly the same. I live in a town but a rural one and it's not something I have noticed before.

Quote from: bgmnts on January 05, 2022, 01:38:35 AMGamekeepers allowed to shoot wild birds now the government says. Why are people just obsessed with killing shit that is in no way a threat to them?
