    Packham - when you thought it couldn't get stranger

    I've got a freezer full of roadkill and head shot rabbits from the local gamekeeper. I use them to bait buzzards to a couple of my photography hides. Even had a red kite scoffing on one last week. https://imgur.com/y1LLYtM https://imgur.com/VL3nWe5

    Royal wedding why should tax payers fund it

    Sarah Ferguson and Mike Tyndall are not on the Sovereign Grant. It cost each taxpayer 65p a year to fund the royal family in 2017, less than the cost of a 1st class stamp. Money well spent I'd say.

    How was your bank holiday weekend

    I've been setting up a photo hide to try and catch a pair of local Buzzards over the last couple of weeks. It's on the edge of a woodland about 80 yards from the nest. Finally after monitoring the birds for a while the weekend weather was perfect for a few shots. Armed with a roadkill pigeon and dead rabbit it was time to see if I could get them down and in camera range. On Saturday I put the pigeon out and had three birds down over a period of an hour and a half, probably about 50 feet away. On Monday one bird ate the face off the rabbit!! All in all a pretty successful couple of days.

    Shadow Voter engagement minister and voter ID

    Whilst I would agree to a certain extent with what you are saying Scully, it is only possible to vote if you are on the electoral register. The register holds more information than that which is printed on, for instance, the Northern Ireland electoral identity card, where only a name, dob and photo are required. If such a card can reduce the likelihood of electoral fraud then I wouldn't be averse to such a thing. A full on identity card system I would be dead against.

    Trump visit UK

    She didn't get called a terrorist because of The Donald, if indeed she ever got called a terrorist at all. If she was ever called a terrorist it would have been because, as she was keen to point out, she is a muslim, and most terrorist attacks in this country over the last few years have been carried out by others keen to point out that they too were muslims. To try and put the blame for any name calling on Trumps actions in a country 3500 miles away is disingenuous, weak, and quite frankly risible. Someone on the panel or in the audience should have put her straight.

    Shadow Voter engagement minister and voter ID

    I'm not sure why ethnic minorities would be less likely to have photo ID? Photo ID is required in Northern Ireland, and is accepted and used with no real issues. Most people over the age of 18 will have some form of photo ID, whether it be a student card, travel card, driving licence, passport or a myriad of other forms of ID, some may even have a shotgun/firearms licence!! This stems from a report on electoral fraud published in 2014, and photo ID was one of the recommendations. There were other recommendations on proxy voting and party reps handling voters registration and ballots. I would think the Labour party are non too keen on anything that could inhibit some of their core vote from 'playing the system'. Labour... Vote early... Vote often. Arrrgh yes, Peterborough. It's a town on the list of local authority areas identified as at high risk of electoral fraud... bet you can't guess why?

    Bombs away (Syria) ...

    Ooooh, someone's rattled this morning. It's a simple question really. The deep state you claim is behind all the troubles in the world must have people who are in control. An institution on its own can do nothing, but institutions have someone, a person with a name, who is in control of the direction and acts of that institution. You claim these shady institutions are behind all this yet seem unable to name either the institutions or the people in charge of them. It's not about point scoring, simply a request for the information you claim you know, and that forms the basis of your arguments. You constantly berate the msm and claim that anyone following their narrative is somehow being lied to and manipulated, yet you have been drawn in hook, line and sinker by the Russian propaganda machine. Now, I'm sure the western media do, at times, have a bias in reporting yet you only have to look at the front pages of today's newspapers to see they're not all singing from the same hymn sheet. Something I doubt will be noticeable from your sources of information. I think it is you, not me, who is being lied to and played by your choice of media simply because they play to the narrative you want to hear.

    Bombs away (Syria) ...

    The 'deep state' must comprise of people, and those people must have names. I don't know why it's so difficult for you to name them. You were so desperate to spread your disinformation you used the figures obtained from an article in Fortune magazine, which used that figure to guess at the stock rises for the missile manufacturers after the US strikes in Syria last year. C'mon, even I know where you get your information from comrade.

    Bombs away (Syria) ...

    No, really I'm not finding it hard to keep up... but it is becoming near impossible to get a straight answer from you. Now, this 'deep state' which according to you is behind this whole episode consists of who? Individuals and corporations please. You must know who they are as you're accusing them of killing women and children, so I'm sure you'll be happy to name them? The missiles were sent Friday night, and the stock markets don't open again until tomorrow morning, so how could you possibly know that the manufacturers shares have gone up by $5bn? You see, this is the problem with your arguments so far. They're based on what you want to be true rather than any real facts.

    Bombs away (Syria) ...

    Hello Hamster Are we any further forward on the 'outside forces' and the 'truth which is spreading like wildfire'? Are we in 'deep state' territory yet? Just wondered.

    Getting rather serious this Syria thing.

    I'll look forward to Sergy Lavrov sharing this piece of vital evidence from the Swiss laboratory with the rest of the world. I would assume he would have a copy of the report, after all it wouldn't be much to ask seeing as his country has been accused of poisoning two people on foreign soil. He's had the report in his hands for a couple of days now, so I'm sure he'll have posted this vital and exonerating piece of evidence on t'internet for all to see? I'll go and have a browse, then get back to share the evidence with the PW massive. I'm sure it'll placate all the fifth columnists in our midst.

    What 'truth' would that be? Your truth seems to emanate from the Russian propaganda machine, and those of its allies. Hardly a balanced source of information.

    Raptors and Domestic Cats

    I wouldn't underestimate the strength and power of a hungry raptor. I was out photographing hares last year when a male Marsh Harrier attacked a fully grown hare. Whether it would have managed to take off with it I don't know as it was attacked by crows and eventually had to abandon its prey. It did however have it off the ground on a few occasions. A Marsh Harrier weighs about 1lb , a hare around 7lbs. I did manage to grab a quick shot but it was so far off it was of no use so I watched the action unfold through bino's.
