    Dane, next time you go fishing in your pond, make sure you have your gun with you as well:

    I would probably pee in my pants had I seen two fins swimming near me like that... (correction: pee in the water.... )

    Orcas may be called Killer whales, but they do not appear to be too interested in human flesh.

    An Unicorn is alive and well on Iceland:

    He could easily have become last years "Faar-i-Kaal". Now he is a "Celebrity".

    Bird spotters are more interested in spotting a particular type of bird than any one individual. With my AB (the old blackbird who got ill and who I found alive but collapsed outside my backdoor) I was able to ID him from the start, not only for his greed for sultanas but because some of his feathers began to whiten as time went on. Seems to be something that happens with blackbirds, now and again I've noticed others that I assume to be old birds developing white feathers.
    I have two wood pigeons which haunt the garden, and I can't even tell the difference betwen the s.exes. One, obviously the male, spends most of its time chasing the female up and down the overhead power line, then when she finally flies off in exasperation, he crash lands in the garden to see if he can reach the food on the birdtable. He's as thick as two short planks, making fruitless attempts to fly up on to it. Time and time again he fails, spending so much energy in the repeated attempts that he'll need twice as much food to make up for it. But the female comes down quietly and has a good look round for seeds dropped by other birds, then inspects the leaves of nearby plants for seeds or crumbs that have fallen on to them. Very resourceful lady.
    So when one or other comes into the garden I can always tell whether it is thickie or the female just by its habits.

    Yeah well. Every gull looks the same as the other.
    I was just then comparing them, and notice it was the same one.
    Is this what bird spotters do?

    Yes, when I said "that first one" I meant first photo, not first bird. I assume it was the sme bird each time. Sorry.

    Ah, the gull photographer is back. That first one is almost a silhouette, but there is that lovely line of light on the leading edge of the wings, the almost transparent ends of the wing feathers and the way the light moulds the body shape. Beautiful shots.

    Well, one thing I have learnt from the video - moose are colour blind! I wonder how they test for that, unless they examine the retina of a dead one?

    "Our" Chick didn't survive, (I don't know what happened, maybe a car or a cat got it, but it has not been seen for several days) but here is one of this year's crop that did.
