Great Grey Owl
Just love this, David. Thanks.
Dont know if Ive mentioned it before but I once saw what I thought was a dead owl stuck in old fishing line that was hanging from a tree.
Anyway it turned out it wasnt dead so me and two more men rescued it.
You can see a video of the rescue with this Youtube link
The owl and the pussycat(caption comp)
Absolutely stunning,this fine specimen and the Barn Owl are my favorites,top marks David.
Brilliant pic David,.....one for my bird album.....Thank you....cheers!!!
Tied up. looks sick as a parrot.Nowt wrong with picture though.
We have some lovely posters & ix of owls, they came from the Owl & Otter Sanctuary in Darley Dale, they were lovely.
Look Here, Look there;
See This, See That;
What are we doing here Today?
Who's that man with the one big eye,
And all those people nearby.
Looking at me? I don't know why!
But I am looking my best, I don't deny,
So I'll just sit here -
Till they say Goodbye!
oh hello not took long again as it ? our feathered friends entertaining use ive said it once and i'll say it again no body gives a HOOT about birds. again this could of been taken in newport south wales for all we know i just dont see the wigan conection unlike the owl who see's everything.
Come on Harry..at the top it says Trencherfield Mill.
A wise old owl sat in an oak
The more he heard the less he spoke,
The less he spoke the more he heard,WHY CAN,T WE ALL BE LIKE THAT BIRD !!
"nobody gives a HOOT about birds"?--Really, Harry, the preponderance of people reacting to this picture would deny that statement!!
It just occurred to me that I used the wrong word.--- Instead of preponderance, I should have written majority.
Wow. Absolutely stunning bird & brilliant pic
Ellen,we know what you mean,and you're correct.
Beautiful photo,but why is it on a leash?
Smashing pic I love owls. Dirty Harry speak for yourself not all of us. Anyway you put one on but make sure it's got Wigan stamped on.
Mick, I've just watched the video you mention. It very good thank you for highlighting it.
Well excuse my ignorance,its a long time ago..but whrn i was at gidlow school I dont think we were taught about preponderance....what really,does it meen!? Sounds rather posh,Ellen. (I know what majority means)!
Jean, it means something to the effect of being stronger in terms of power or influence. I don't know why I used the word, but it does seem rather posh and I wanted to get my point under D.H's skin!(Kind of mean- spirited of me, I know,but under the circumstances.....)
Jean, copy and paste :-
DIRTY HARRY has hit the nail on the head.
Maureen, we know it`s taken in Wigan, but as DIRTY HARRY says, it could be anywhere.
freda.c, it was part of a collection on display.
Ernest I know it could be anywhere,but the same applies to the gentlemen sat around the tree..we have to believe the title.
nobody gives a hoot about your comments diry harry ,your just a sad old man.
Thanks for your reply Ellen.glad you didnt take my comment the wrong way....i just thought it was funny but i can see why you used the word now .
Ernest and Dirty Harry. How can you not enjoy this photo?
