    When I was last in Norway I tried to obtain a collection of Baake's drawings but was told he has never compiled them into a book. Pity....he is just so spot on with people's behaviour.

    When I was much younger we had a tidal pool for fish, built of cobblestones and about the size of a U-shaped sports field.
    It had two large groupers who came to the steps to be fed crabs, plus about 6 Maori wrasse of all ages who did the same. Rock cod and eels slid in and out between the stones as they pleased. There were never any brawls or fights, despite the large range and size of the fish. It was a BIG attraction for all visitors, mostly yachties from Hawaii and often Japanese trawlers. Most fish are able to be tamed to come and be patted.

    I love all those cartoons. When we travelled on FM in 2004, my Norwegian vocabulary was such that Mrs Glover had to explain that Måken is seagull - hence the Finnmåk(k)en on the lifebelt.

    Mr Bugge, Sir

    Did you mean CHICKEN Tikka Masala or Gull-tikka-masala ?
    Funny thing is, in Singapore, Butter Chicken or Tandoori Chicken would be a more popular choice !
    Hope that reminds you a little of Singapore, amongst things that you might want to forget ( or forgive ).

    And since we're in this thread with Gulls fanciers esp Janihudi , I am contributing a Dagfinn Bakke painting that I took on the Finnmarken in 2014.

    best wishes, all.

    Fortunately, it was not a bin of French rugbymen's socks!

    What can I say, ONLY IN WALES??: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-36490552

    That should teach this seagull not to try to mess with the British national dish.

    PS> The Chicken Tikka Masala tasted just as good though.

    Although they are common and everywhere in the world, the seagull is a very elegant and handsome bird.

    All things 'birdie' from the canal today.

    The blue tits were nesting in the rubbish bin at the cafe - but had clearly installed CCTV so that they could make sure that no cameras were pointing their way when they were entering or leaving their nest, so you'll just have to take my word for that.

    Cybil the swan was clearly expecting a happy event - in the meantime sunbathing and stretching was the order of the day - occasionally interspersed with giving passing people and dogs a hard stare.



    Herbert the heron meanwhile was pretending to be a tree by perching in, errr, a tree.



    Down the with ducks, Dominic was trying to find his wallet.



    Plus an extra left over from a couple of weeks ago - a Swedish seagull in Strömstad standing on something somewhat slippery.

    Great photo and story. Actually it's a kittiwake, a slightly smaller relative of the common or seagull.
    It is good to see humans "to the rescue" as in these last two posts instead of the near extinction of so much of the world's wildlife due to our actions, whether deliberate or unheeding.

    Good story. Shockwave was playing up, as usual, so I couldn't see the video except the thumbnails at the bottom if you move the cursor along. But Google Translate gave the story - after a fashion!

    A Seagull story from smp.no today: http://www.smp.no/nyheter/alesundogo...e-12703396.ece
    Hope Google translate treat this one nicely. (If not, just ask Mark)
