Radipole Lake

16 Jul

On Sunday 12th I went to Radipole Lake in Weymouth to seen some birds. I was hoping to seen a mediterranean gull because I have not seen a mediterranean gull before Sunday 12th. I also did not on Sunday 12th. Or since Sunday 12th. This is a dreadful way to try and fill the time between birth and death. Sweet death. Wonderful welcoming death. It was a great day.

Marsh harrier and swift unaware of each other probably or having a fight maybe. I don't know. I never claimed to be your god, you just made me one.

Marsh harrier. Again. Might be a different one. Might not.

My best guess is reed warbler. Could just as easily be any other brown bird. Let's pretend it is a horsefinch just for some excitement. Ooh look at this horse finch. No. Didn't work. Still bored.

Robin facts

14 Dec

Today I gone up the Farlingtons and seen a robin.

A robins.

A robins.

It is a FACT that you only ever seen a robin at Christmastime. The rest of the year, they do not exist.

Here are some other robin FACTS to help you celebrate Jehovah The God doing dirties with a fourteen year old girl.

1. The story of Robin Hood is based on the real life story of an Afro-American robin struggling to escape the ghetto. The original title of the story was Robin In Da Hood.

2. Robins are the only member of the bird family to deny the holocaust. But they do it in such a chipper fashion, nobody minds.

3. The 1958 song “Rockin’ Robin” by Bobby Day is not about robins at all. It is in fact about a blood splattered sparrow, in a state of shock, rocking back and forth in the corner muttering “What have I done?” over and over.

4. Sandra Bullock played the robin in the original stage show of Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Musical. The role was immediately axed because she seemed more like a nuthatch, ruining the narrative and upsetting the RSPB.

5. Robins actually fly backwards, but because their arses look like faces no one has ever noticed.

I also seen these:

Spoonbill

27 Mar

I just gone right up the Farlington Marshes. I seen a spoonbill. Some people think they are called spoonbills because their bills are spoony. This is not true. In fact, it is very difficult to eat soup with a spoonbill’s bill. Unless it is dead. The real reason they are called spoonbills is that they like to sleep snuggled up next to men called William.

Been up Farlington Marshes. Seen repeats. Sometimes I get so bored birdseening that I imagine what political party the different birds would vote for. Most of them would vote for UKIP because they are mentally ill bigots. Fortunately they have wings instead of hands so they can’t hold a pen. I hate birds so very much.

Incidentally, shovelers would, given half a chance, push for a communist regime, because they are idealists who refuse to learn by humanity’s mistakes. Tsk. Silly ducks.
