They actually circle my cat and then launch little darting attacks at her - she just sits there and shakes - with that sort of behaviour and and living in this area they're probably West Ham supporters..............My cat is scared of magpies and jays. Keeps well clear.
When we lived in Catalonia I got talking to a hunter who had 2 Harris hawks...I asked him a few questions etc as you do and before long I had a gauntlet on with one of these birds on my arm...what happened next can only described as utter fucking stupidity on my behalf. I put a tiny piece of chicken on my nose and let this bird peck it off. I was shitting myself in a really strange way knowing the damage this bird could do but I didn't feel a thing and remembered looking into its eyes, they were almost hypnotic. God only knows why I did it but it was a very special feeling, one I'll remember for ever.
i believe the migratory path has had some quite bad weather this season, and the UK has had a lot of northerlies this spring as well. I dont see many this spring though, but certainly some for ~ 3 weeks. Why you havent got any though, i dont know.For years the swallows here arrived on about 8th May. Last year they were two weeks late. Same happening now, don’t know why. Obvs not late in Lancs.
