I hope to purchase an i-Pad and retire the laptop over the coming weeks. What do experienced users think is the overall best option in terms of performance, technical support, reliablity, value for money etc.?? All suggestions gratefully received:)
Alot to be worried about in this report but the poisoning of raptors in...
Rather worrying and something very few people would have been aware about up till now. Only a scientific expedition to summering areas will get to the bottom of this mystery.
Pelicans, eagles, vultures - these guys are a real menace to a whole host of rare and declining migrant species all across the med fly-path. I could only watch some of that video before I became ill with rage:C
One of the last great wildernesses on the planet looks set to be sacrificed for a dam project of dubious benefit - follow the links contained in this link for the full story:http://safaritalk.net/topic/7683-damn-the-selous-tanzania-major-power-project-receives-boosts/
Interesting read - not least for the fact that illegal persecution appears to have killed more of the birds in NI then the Republic:(
This unique sub-species of the already critically endangered Javan Rhino is gone for ever. Primarily due to Vietnams shocking record on conservation that will soon account for its remaining large mammals. This country is also second only to China as a...
Seriously depressing stuff and probably now one of the single biggest threats to a whole hoist of iconic and endangered wildlife from India to Africa:-C
You think you've seen it all when it comes to perverse human ignorance - then you read stuff like above:-C
PS: I was aware this chemical is wiping out lions and vultures across Africa but to...
PS: I was in Kenya during late 09' at the end of a long drought and despite huge amounts of dead carcasses(mainly livestock) scattered over large areas of bush, I could count the numbers of vultures seen on one hand over the 2 weeks:(...
They appear to be over here based on the last 2 Springs at least - a flood of sightings from around the country including in areas where they have not been seen for many decades. This year they have even been spotted in city centre parks in Dublin:eek!:
This is most welcome given the steep...
This has got to also spell bad news for many of Europes summer migrants who winter in this part of the world:-C
See post 2 on the link below:
plus Songbird Surival rears its ugly head in this one
PS: I've tried to join this forum (I have an interest in a small farm) but can't cos I have a...
This has the potential to hit many of our already declining summer migrants hard:-C - also sounds like Mali needs the "Tahir square" treatment:C
Its starting early this winter/spring:C:C - The case screams "shooting estate" given the recent the Scottish experiance and the fact that we are still months away from the lambing season
The above is just one of many incidents that have come to light in recent years across Africa from Kenya to Botwana and in no doubt just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the total carnage that furadan and...
Another Black day for Kites on the Black Isle|:(|
The use/misuse of poisons across rural Scotland and its toll on protected raptors is truely horrific:C
Along with news today of yet another dead sea-eagle found in Kerry.
This madness needs to stop. It appears this spring has marked an escalation in the activities of the scum who are now well on their way to wiping out...
Doesn't look good: http://www.rte.ie/news/2010/0403/eagle.html.
All three raptor re-introduction projects have now been hit again in ireland this spring - this latest case has not been a confirmed poisoning but looks likely given that 95% of confirmed loses from all projects up till now have...
