Instructacon BBQ Seagull Capture. Answered

Picture of
Seagull attack!



We couldn't trap this slick beast. But the BBQ was fun anyway. Hope to see more of you here next year, and check out some pictures here!

All you need is a bigger box, propped higher, with the food further back from the prop...

However, as a member of the RSPB, I need to point out that I didn't actually say that...

A vaguely-related video from Clipser

And a similar one from YouTube (can you spot the squirrel that is starting to learn its lesson?)

That is awesome. For a while there I was wondering if the squirrel was enjoying it. 'Cause if that had been me, and the box was baited with ribs, I'd be well-fed and happy, if not a little bruised up. That looks like fun!

I shot our state bird once (goldfinch). It's a long story, not really, but just boring.

Last summer my wife and I got to witness a young golden eagle eating a vole by the edge of the road. We were sitting in an automobile just across the road!!! Not more then 10 feet from him. What a magnificent specimen he was too. I don't get opportunities like that often *sigh*

I was on the beach with the boys this afternoon, next to a small nature reserve called Benacre. I was watching a handful of Little Ringed Plover when a kestrel turned up and just sat on the beach. I've never seen a kestrel on the ground except on a kill before, but this one just sat on the shingle and looked around. Odd.

Is this the kestrel you refer to? Very noble looking falcon :-)

That's the one, although the one I saw was kind of ruffled.

I half-hoped it was a juvenile hobby, but, alas, I think not.

Good news, I've just been listening to a recording and I think it may have been a hobby after all!

Very cool. We have quite a few falcons that have taken up residence on the outskirts of town where I live, as they are running out of wildlife elsewhere *sigh*.

as they are running out of wildlife elsewhere *sigh*.

Meaning "wildlife to eat", because of developments and such taking their forests. Now most voles live "inside" of people's houses :-)
