The Big Chicken is back!!!
(well, afternoon in Scotland)
This is Mrs Black Chicken. She sits and waits for us when we take the dog for a walk in the morning. Many of the good people of Banff and Macduff feed the birds which probably explains why Mrs Black Chicken is a bit on the portly size…

The early bird catches the worm!
It’s difficult to hold a camera in one hand and, at the same time, take photographs of the chicken sitting on your other hand! The Chicken will NOT sit still!
Who will rid us of this hopeless Conservative Party!
Migratory birds leaving the UK. Can you blame them? The UK Conservative Party has turned the UK into a failed state. Our services (NHS, transport, energy, schools etc. etc.) have been wrecked by the Conservative Party’s failed agenda. The UK Conservative Party has lost control of the economy. Brexit has been a disaster and desperately helpless immigrants are drowning in the English Channel. I predict a riot!

A gathering of chickens on a Scottish island
The picture says it all…
Surely it is time for a General Election? Could the Tories screw things up more than they already have?
Let’s see if John – https://lvphotoblog.com/blog/ – can identify this chicken (below)?
John is an expert ‘avianonics’ man from Las Vegas. John recently identified this chicken on a different post as a Mandarin Chicken.
Clear for take-off!!!

One of our small native chickens…
Sue makes friends with one of the chickens in the woods.
These long nose chickens spotted near to Banff, Aberdeenshire this afternoon.
Are you looking at me?
Join me as I try to record the sound of birds today. It is public holiday here today in Scotland. There is no wind. It would have been a perfect day to record bird sounds in the woods near to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duff_HouseDuff House in Banff, Aberdeenshire. Wonderful bird sounds but oh my, the noise of a f**king tractor on Banff Golf Course provided unwanted background noise to the recording of the birds who were really going for it in the woods today. Pah!
…another one of those chickens with a red chest..
Join me for a walk in the woods close to Duff House in Banff, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
Join me at the Vritomartis Naturist Resort close to Hora Sfakion, Crete as I listen to the very busy bees and other insects buzzing around large plants close to our beautiful room which overlooks the Libyan Sea. You might also hear the occasional bird!
These tiny spotted beetles (top left of image) spent the whole day in the bush outside our room mating. Twosomes, threesomes, foursomes – beetles, it seems, have a really good and varied time in the mating season. Lucky them!
I came across this little chap whilst I was wandering around the mountains in Crete today. He or she wasn’t best pleased to see me and soon scampered off. We’ve been trying to work out whether anyone owns the goats or whether they are just wild…
I can’t help thinking that this chicken was issued with the wrong feet…
Join me at a bird colony on a rock which sticks out of the sea just West of Portsoy, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. If you listen, you will hear the sea washing around the column of rock and the birds, who cling to and nest of the sheer rock face (see image) and make an almighty noise. You can hear the natural echo as the bird sounds bounce off the cliff faces which surround the rock column. You will hear seagulls, gannets, razorbills, cormorants and many other birds – all squawking away. You’ll hear ‘peak squawking’ at about 2 minutes.
There is always someone who wants a free ride!
A few more flowers and other wild things for you to enjoy…
