    Surfbirder email account

    It’s getting ridiculous now, not only have I not heard any contact from everyone.net, I’ve not heard anything from Hostopia support either - other than an auto reply that my request is being dealt with. The customer service here is shocking.

    Surfbirder email account

    I’ve got incoming emails but it’s like a very basic and sterile format. My problem is I’ve lost all my previous emails, sent emails, drafts etc Tried emailing any address /link I can find for everyone.net and not heard a peep. My subscription ends on the 20th this month, and if I can’t get a...

    Surfbirder email account

    Hi, does anyone have a surfbirder email account? If so, is it working ok? I’ve had an account for years but I appear to be locked out at password entry. I understand they are in a transfer stage moving across to a new host but everything was supposed to work the same. It’s originally run by...

    Dead pheasants: roadkill

    When I worked in a depot in South Essex, a lorry driver turned up with a Male Pheasant hanging from his cracked windscreen. The bird struck the glass, its bill went straight through the screen and wedged solid. This was a 38ton articulated truck, so the screen was very large & thick (and...

    Cormorant Cull Petition

    You clearly didn't read my post or you didn't understand it, but you completly missed my point. I'm not saying you are an idiot if you feed the birds, I'm saying you are an idiot if you feed the birds and then complain that the Starlings are eating it all ! In the case of the Cormorants eating...

    Cormorant Cull Petition

    Cull the Sea Eagles, Save the Cormorant ! ;) Personally I think overstocking a lake or pond artificially is no different to the idiots who feed the birds and moan that Starlings come down and steal all the food ! Andy.

    Stuffed bird seller gets jail for wildlife crimes

    Thats not strictly true, some groups of birds eg corvids are tough as old boots and can take ages to decay beyond use. They are often used by student taxidermists to practise on because they are so tough. Naturally the smaller the species and the amount of fat on the corpse has a factor in its...

    Annoying birding conversations in hides

    Lens focus noise can be avoidable, you just switch to Manual Focus, a function few modern photographers know how to use ! Andy.

    White-backed Woodpecker

    I was tempted but the rising cost of carrots put me off - i simply could not afford the twitch. Also I thought it was a hoax anyway ! ;)

    Eyebrowed Thrush in Norolk

    Or they could turn up at such a location, sit in a pub and contribute nothing to the birding scene, then write a stupid patronising comment a few years later. Smacks of 'do as I say, not as I do' ! :eek!: Andy.
