First Ever Day of 'Proper Birding'

Saturday was my first ever day of what I like to call 'proper birding'. I already had a small list of birds seen but I hadn't specifically been birding at the time just walking my dog or stopped in traffic. It also applies here that during all of my birding, my parents being non-birders were moaning about it being too boggy or too overgrown all the time, my mother did point out a Woodpigeon once though Disclamer: I do not smoke.
Anyway at about 11am after looking up Google Maps I...

Hello one and all, and welcome to my birding blog. Whenever I go birding, I will make sure that this blog will be updated. Anyway, I hope to make this blog of mine as entertaining and engaging as possible by describing my birding experiences in depth. Unfortunately there won't be any photos in this blog of mine, as I don't have the right photographic equipment to picture birds, but nonetheless, I don't think that will make much difference anyway. So please give this a read if you are interested;...

There Ought To Be A Ban On Whale Hunting

Posted Wednesday 29th July 2009 at 03:47 by Francis Duggan
There ought to be a Worldwide ban on whale hunting since all species of whales are becoming rare

On the sensitive issue of whaling will tell you that this is all lies
That killing in the name of science of marine mammals has always only been a guise
For commercialism at the expense of endangered species the human record on conservation is bad
The number of creatures...

I've never once seen them on land though from the shore I see
Them with folded wings from dizzy heights diving into the sea
And then they rise out of the waves and upwards again fly
These hunters of the ocean who stalk their prey from the sky.

To watch gannets fishing is an amazing sight
They fly above the ocean and dive from a great height
I once see one dead on a beach it was washed in by the tide
Born on a cliff ledge overlooking the sea...

I Heard The Black Swans Cry

Posted Wednesday 29th July 2009 at 03:41 by Francis Duggan
Above the coastal town I heard the black swans cry
As to their feeding grounds they flew across the sky
To estuary or lake they travelled in the night
It was not a big flock they flew at a great height.

I knew them by their cries their voices a give away
I've seldom seen black swans flying in the light of day
Why this happens to be so ask one other than me
To travel in the night to them comes naturally.

Even on the darkest night...
