    Crow attacking rabbit.

    First time for me; walking towards St Abbs Head, I saw a couple of herring gulls mobbing a crow on the ground. The crow chased them off and I saw his food "rolling" down the hill. The food got up and ran back up the hill, it was a young rabbit. The crow was still trying to subdue the bunny as...

    Wellies with good stiff soles?

    Any recommendations for wellies with "walking boot" type soles? Sometimes the ground in "my" woods is covered by a series of lakes and I'm forced into wellies to go bimbling. Trouble is I suffer from painful big toe joints and I need a good stiff soled boot to be comfortable.

    Platypus in the cold?

    Anyone got any experience of using a platypus style water bag in sub zero temperatures? Mine has a neoprene sleeve on the tube but I doubt if that will be effective.

    Air pistol for rabbits?

    My Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla is a dab hand at finding and pointing out bunnies in bushes. Now I am rubbish with a throwing stick; the bunnies are in a bush and can't be whacked with a walking stick; when they run off the dog's after them (not trained). Question: Is it legal and is an...

    "Extra" bits on clothes.

    Is it just me, or do other folks sometimes wonder what the extra bits, which appear on shirts, jackets and trousers, like tabs, buttons, poppers etc are for? I would like to have a little card attached to the garment, along with the other bits of card, pointing out the features and what their...

    Today's Adder

    Can't find the relevant thread, sorry.:rolleyes: My dog found this one.:eek: Luckily he was very unsure about it. I couldn't manage a better picture as the dog moved in when I did. EDIT: Having seen the picture, I now believe that it's a grass snake, not an adder.:o :o

    Modern Technology, pah!

    I was out in my local wood as usual this morning with my dogs. Took my GPS to get a map ref on a tree which has been uprooted by the wind and is hanging over power lines. Now, I was walking through the woods, on my usual path and waiting for the GPS to get a fix on satellites, when I...
