In Egg! (Newbie) (1/8)

  1. Orkney sec J Buchan 01856 851585,
  2. Im a terrier man, love the little rascals, but a terrier is nothing without dash ,style, intelligence and above all, quiet steady fearless courage, but most of the dogs I see now are appalling ,if they were fighting a rat , you would have your money on the rat. It seems dross can be churned out to a stream of buyers and at the end of covid the dog rescue centers will be full of dumped sub standard dogs with all sorts of issues caused by owners who wanted a "FUR BABY" and cared little about the quality or the needs of the animal they purchased,
  3. STEADY THE SHIP TOM YOU HAVE BEEN IN LOCKDOWN TOO LONG REMEMBER THE WORDS OF OSCAR WILDE "A SECOND MARRIAGE IS THE TRIUMPH OF HOPE OVER EXPERIENCE"
  4. YES, PRE COVID SPARE WOMEN FORMED DANGEROUS HERDS 30 TO 40 STRONG CALLED " RAMBLING GROUPS" WHO,S MISSION IN LIFE WAS TO GRAB OLD GUYS AND "IMPROVE "THEM, NEVER MIND THEY HAVE ALREADY PUT SOME POOR DEVIL IN THE GRAVE. LUCKILY I HAVE A WEE DUG WHO WARNS ME WHEN THEY ARE HALF A MILE AWAY, AND I TROT AWAY AND WATCH FROM A VANTAGE POINT IN THE NEAREST PUB
  5. NO THEY HAVE IMPORTED THOUSANDS OF KILL TRAP BOXES ARTIC LOADS OF THEM ,HALF A DOZEN BRAND NEW PICKUPS SPENDING 5 MILLION ON THE JOB VERY LITTLE RSPB MONEY MOSTLY EUROPEAN---- SCOTGOV MONEY .
  6. RSPB ORKNEY ARE LOOKING FOR DOG HANDLERS TO FIND STOATS THE JOB WILL LAST 4 YEARS 21-25 THOU A YEAR CLOSES IN THREE DAYS. WHEN I WAS YOUNG I KEPT LURCHERS AND TERRIERS THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN A DREAM JOB FOR ME , OUT ALL DAY HUNTING AND GETTING PAID FOR IT ! THERE IS A PIGEON CLUB AND ITS A GREAT PLACE TO STAY.JUST THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE A HEADS UP TO ANY BODY OUT OF WORK,
  7. google up " Ad Schaerlaeckens cider vinegar" lots of interesting wee snippets about it.
  8. GB20 b 53658 bird is race rubbered but not wing stamped bird is gey far travelled to be lost off an english race thought it might be lost of a northern loft.
  9. Well done ,we race from Kingussie and i have always thought it was a chewy race point ,but Dalwhinnie is something else !
  10. Well done Mark Beer on his first federation winner. A great start for the new john o groats club I,m sure with his enthusiasm there will be many more.
  11. I have read and heard about this wretch for years ,no doubt he is not "too tightly wrapped" but it seems the law is letting fanciers down. Over the years he has caused thousands of pounds worth of damage and loads of misery to people unlucky enough to be targeted by him. If it was not pigeons that were involved,but other offences, repeatedly vandalising cars for instance,so that insurance companies and police were constantly involved , a more serious view of his activities might have been taken . I don,t know if the person has mental illness or a personality disorder, but with the constant repetition of his offences it seems that both he and more importantly the public are being let down by the various services involved. When people have no recourse or protection or satisfaction from the legal route it is no wonder in the past they have taken more direct action.

    Backfired

    If they have a way of protecting birds from peregrine attacks perhaps they would like to share it with us. When peregrines have mounted an attack on my birds they work like a collie at sheep they don,t stoop , just fly flat, single one out and kill. I have waved a bucket bag sized flag at them and shouted till i,m blue in the face to no avail they still kill . No doubt most fanciers have had similar event. After covids lifted they can come and "PATROL" fanciers lofts and show us how its done.
  13. Try google Mairi Gougeon birds of prey. You may also have a look at her C V on wikipedia and the qualifications she has obtained to prepare her for the job as minister for rural affairs and environment .
  14. I was asked by my fed sec [as is usual] to give him the number of rings the club requires for next year by end of May so that he can send amount wanted off to S H U which then collates numbers and places order. If there is no old bird racing or young bird racing this season a lot of fanciers lofts will be stowed out and this will limit amount amount of rings ordered through the federations for next year. Would it be possible to delay S H U order till it becomes certain this seasons young bird racing takes place ? I remember discussions on the forum about the timing of ring issue in the past and i have no wish to plough that ground again, but if the S H U order to supplier was delayed to co-inside with a january issue it might be no bad thing.
