probably a magic lantern?
Thought you would have been up on the magic lantern sort of thing Oldhenwife!
I might not be the worlds greatest expert on bird spotting, but I can tell the difference between a bird and a "magic lantern"
Oh I remember magic lanterns well but can't understand what they have to do with this thread.
So pigs can fly?
Either that or someone's invented a pork tree.
Not a pork tree, an 'ambush.
Hope no one chops it down
I live in the Fearnville area and red kites are a common sight (oddly enough mostly on Sundays). Harewood started a red kite breeding program a few years ago and released some into the wild around Eccup reservoir. As their "hunting" range (they are scavengers) is anything up to 15 miles it should not be surprising to see them over any area of Leeds, indeed I have heard reports of them having been seen scavenging in the city centre.
Some interesting Red Kite factoids there philess, thanks.:icon_smile:
Where do you live the rest of the week?
Up until the end of June I have seen red kites over Harehills on an almost daily basis, but none since then - any ideas?
I saw the red kite over Harehills this morning. haven't seen the Crossgates one for ages unless it's the same bird....
You did! There are several in the north of the city, one regularly flies over Harehills, have seen two regularly over Roundhay and also seen one flying low over Asda at Killingbeck. Sometimes they are so low you can see the feathers rippling in the wind-a truly awesome sight. If you go to Harewood they fly very very low over the bird garden and you can often see several flying round the trees on the estate.
Not Leeds, but very sad anyway.
Good old fashioned ignorant gamekeeping no doubt. As long as the cash crop pheasant are OK who gives a toss about real wild birds eh? Should be found and jailed, along with the landowner who hired the ****.
Don't remember writing ****, I thought I wrote ****.
You'll find that we have a swear filter here due to it being a family forum.
Yes I know. Just being humorus.
