Thanks for that Hugo. I have sent the link to my Great Granddaughters, they enjoy feeding the birds, so they will now be able to i.d. them by their song.

It was quite rough in Angel Bay this afternoon and I could only see one Seal pup on the beach although there were a few out in the sea

This is interesting but not local to the Llandudno area. I thought I would post it as they might fly over there, you might catch one over the Great Orme.

The only people who will benefit from the reintroduction will be the shotgun cartridge salesmen. No sheep farmer will tolerate them any where near their lambs.

Ignorance is a real problem. National Geographic says of the US Golden Eagle it eats "rabbits, marmots, and ground squirrels. They also eat carrion, reptiles, birds, fish, and smaller fare such as large insects." Studies of farmland surrounding Yellowstone have revealed they have a minimal impact on farming and animal husbandry.

Although one of my favorites, I can sympathise with the farmers point of view, especially as it will be the hard pressed hill farmer who this will affect, however releasing these birds is not straight forward, I read about the Scottish release last year................

Setback for southern Scotland project as female eagle attacks newly released birds.

Conservationists fear two golden eagles that were recently released in southern Scotland have been killed by a female of the species introduced into the area last year.

The South Scotland Golden Eagle Project said the behaviour of the female raptor, named Beaky, is very unusual.

A third young male eagle is being kept securely in an aviary in the area after the incident, in which one bird was killed and another has gone missing. The three males were satellite tagged.

After a long absence a Greater Spotted Woodpecker has returned to the garden and has been feasting on the peanut holder.     The female Woodpecker stays on the peanut feeder for over 10 minutes at a time but I have been unable to take a photo of her because as soon as I move off she goes

We left a lot of food out for the Badger tonight and were lucky to see him in the garden just after 9.00 pm
