I have seen pigeons raising a wing towards rain or a fountain; one in Hampshire and one in Birmingham. The one in Birmingham raised the other wing away from the fountain, so perhaps this is learnt beh ...

Birds can learn where food is concerned. Perhaps lucky chance by some pigeon and then another learnt from it, or he may have thought it out himself. We had a robin who learnt to land on a peanut feede ...

Can you use a wide strap for the camera round your neck? It might mean holding your breath for a short time while you get the shot. You could do this rather more effectively sitting as long as you don ...

Slightly disturbing, but glad there was no damage. We had one here in about 1963 in the middle of the night. The bed shook, which woke me up and rather frightened me. One boy at school told us a pictu ...

I have just looked it up Jam Lady, and I was wrong. Apparently they do have bladders, all be it very small, but then they are very small. They just have a bad habit of urinating everywhere. Humans mus ...

Mice and rats have a bad habit of leaving urine wherever they go as they have no bladder as I understand. Apart from the unpleasant small of acetamide, they do carry Weills disease and can carry other ...

As you say Dpack; realistic. It is better to be realistic than to end up laid up.

Our main visitors of a non-human kind yesterday were buzzards high above us and a number of probably wood mice. I ...

There are fish by pass weirs in some places that have low enough steps for migratory fish to climb. These are mainly things like salmon and trout I think, and they can jump.
