Quote from: Voltan (Man of Steel) on October 27, 2021, 05:45:37 PMWe regularly get the odd collared dove swinging by to visit the feeder and bird bath but this morning nine of the buggers showed up all at once - these six and another three on the lawn.I'm used to sparrows and, to a lesser extent, goldfinches (although they disappeared some months ago and haven't yet reappeared 😢) arriving in small groups but I haven't seen this before.

Quote from: Twonty Gostelow on October 27, 2021, 06:30:46 PMI love to see collared doves, but they're very nervy and often get bullied out of the way by graceless wood pigeons.Strange to think there weren't any at all in the UK before 1954.
Quote from: Buelligan on November 03, 2021, 10:19:53 AMDon't know what to think about this - couple of days ago - was walking down a track I walk most days, it runs along a high ridge, pine trees, rocks. Anyway, up ahead I saw a cat sitting, when they sit down on their bum with their front legs straight like they're standing.
QuoteThis cat thing was way up ahead, lion coloured, watched it for a bit, I was downwind, measured it up against what it was near. It disappeared when I blinked. Got to the spot and I'd guess, it was around 40-50cm to the shoulder. Thought it was remarkable, very big for a domestic cat especially miles from anywhere.Yesterday, took the same route, there had been the first light rain for weeks and weeks and weeks. Noticed tracks. I do like to follow and look at tracks. Amongst the numerous boar spore were the unmistakable footprints of a cat. More than one. The largest set were something around the length of my thumb (5ish cm) across and there was another set, possibly two, that were about half the size. Clear as fuck. Followed them down, off this high ridge, into the river valley, up through some vineyards too. I know this is mad, lynx are rare as fuck, and yet, what else could it be? I don't have a camera but I'm going up there shortly to make some casts (no camera but has plaster of paris). Thinking, maybe I should contact some lynx bigwig - we have a lot of cunt-hunters here and, if they are lynx, and I can't think what else they could be, they need protecting. Or would that blow their cover, any ideas?
