There are now two boards, one for non-avian species.

I see a unicorn was spotted recently.

Och man, you're being unkind. It's maybe a wee bit twee but it gives visitors a good idea of what to look out for and it shows that we aren't all hicks from the sticks. Interesting though that a unicorn has been spotted....

With this in mind I'm certainly not going to elaborate on a recent discussion I had with one of my neighbours regarding the siting of nuts feeders !!!!! :lol:

Seemingly, the name 'Wheatear' is a corruption of white arse! There's a lot of them around!

Used to be summer visitors but they're now present all year round :wink:

Hey Maggie and Foxglove !!

So Husker Doo doesn't like blackboards at the shop nor middle class or middle aged people

Wow !!!! Big Deal

More importantly now unable to justify other than a derogatory 'Yes' !!

Snoman :lol:

Just what "rot" is that ?
I would really like to know because I am certainly middle aged and middle class.
Just what "rot set(ting) in around here" do you hold me responsible for ?

What some may see as 'the rot' could be that 'older, sensible' people keep the young exuberant element of our society from running wild :) , they are always being watched... :lol:

Foxglove, don't you realise that 'older' people used to be young once? If you're younger will you keep your young ones in check or let them run wild?
