Hi All

Made a few changes today to the forum today, the obvious one being the Header.

Also added a Picture Gallery and the Google Map.

I have also been updating the CCG website @ www.southtynesideccg.org and
would appreciate feedback on any or all of the changes.

Regards

John

Not much chance of birding today but did have a GSW in the garden which after nibbling at the feeders
sat on top of an arbour for around 10mins sitting very still, which I thought was rather strange as I didn't
think these birds sat still for more than 10 secs.

I had watched a couple of Collareds fly off the bird table, looking as if a Sparrow Hawk was about and
wondered if this was the reason for the GSW behaviour as it sat glued to the top of the arbour horizontal
and eyes fixed skyward.

Anyone noticed this behaviour before.?

Regards

John

Hi John, Joanne and I watched a GWS do exactly the same thing at Clara Vale last week. It sat stock still on a feeder for about 5 mins. We didn't see any Spuggie Hawks but we both came to the conclusion a Spuggk Hawk was what prompted this behaviour. That and the fact that all other birds vanished at exactly the same time.

Always great to observe behavior like this! Not seen this myself but do remember 2 woodies going mad(prob. a family group) at Thornley a few years back from different sides of the clearing here just before a Spuggyhawk gluided thro-. Never seen a Spuggyhawk try for or take a Woody.

Got a call from Mr Newsome today mate forgot to mention in the phone call, it was a heads up as 9(I think) large darker coloured
geese were heading north from Sund/land habour area...poss. Bean geese. But they've not been reported so far on the DBC sightings page.
Its getting the time of year for them lets hope a few grace our soil.

What no bullets flying? Obviously not the ST thread then :-). Hello to everyone and I have removed my tin hat.

Possible barn owl sighting this morning on the path along from the white horse pub. Only very fleeting glimpse of the bird as it was caught in the light from the street lamp.

Hi Enviro...... can't promise there won't be bullets flying but hopefully the forum will be peaceable and people will post sensibly.
Anything on the enviroment, wildlife etc.

Great sighting with the B.O in that area and nothing comes close to seeing a BO in flight especially in the dark with only a small light glow catching its underside.

Regards

John

Hi Brian,

Good find mate, I wonder if it's the same bird that was knocking around Whitburn (latimers/cornthwaite park) just before
Christmas, I caught it one morning in the car headlights ghosting accross the road @ 5.40am - stunning!

Cheers, Dougie.

And me and Jan caught you Dougie hiding in a large bush one night waiting for a Barn Owl to land....or so you say.

Just to make myself clear I will still post on the ST thread on BF to help people out,like I have done tonight and to post promotional/important events etc. and thats it.

Steve
