    Sei whale Scotland

    Quite a few people are not reporting their sightings due to the fact that as soon as they are posted then various boats rush to the site! The last report I heard of was from St Andrews Bay a couple of days ago.

    Sei whale Scotland

    I got to see it on Monday 19th July from Kinghorn. Flat calm sea but didn't spot it for 2 hours when it suddenly popped up east of Inchkeith heading east. There was no blow to be seen and we only saw it 3 more times, probably less than 5 seconds each sighting! Really hard work as it was not...

    Birdwatch Magazine on Hunting

    and now the French have allowed the hunting of Turtle Doves again! They have set a limit of 17,460 but as nobody monitors it then almost 100,000 are likely to be shot!!

    Birdwatch Magazine on Hunting

    September 2020 issue of Birdwatch (P38-41) has a most depressing article on the excesses of the shooting industry and 'Hunting Holidays' The numbers are quite appalling, they make Malta look positively idyllic for migrating birds!!! It is clear that the hunters won't be happy until they have...

    Four Lizards from around Cape Town

    I reckon Number 2 is a Southern Rock Agama and number 4 is a Black Girdled Lizard. One and 3 are probably Agamas of some sort.
