Arcot Pond today...

Spent about an hour at Arcot Pond this afternoon, not much around. On the pond there were 2 Mallard, 2 Grey Heron, 7 Common Gull, 6 BH Gull and a Water Rail calling from the far north west reeds, thats three in under a week now.
70+ Woogpigeon, Great Tit, Jackdaw, Carrion Crow and a Skylark flew over.
On the way back I saw two men with a Greyhound, Ferrets and a Harris Hawk near the dirtbike mound.

They sound like respectable characters !!

Don't you just love those pikey types who think its macho to hunt rabbits with ferrets, chase hares with dogs and shoot squirrels with air rifles !!

..... do you like dags ?!!

I f****ing hate dogs and I agree with all of your views on dog S**t it's bad everywhre in northumberland. St.Mary's is one of the worst places for it, I don't know how bad it is at Newton, I only get there one a year.
So to the long line of sexual activities, drug deals and fly tipping at arcot I can now add three forms of hunting. What a wonderful world.
