Just A Radge
My old flat on albion Road, the woman next door to me had feeders for squirrels and all the birds.
Came home one day looked out my window to catch a sparrowhawk feeding on a pigeon..
Maybe a bit much for some, but it was pretty cool seeing a bird of prey up close.

Stared straight at the camera for a picture too ?
I got video of one ripping a pigeon to bits in my back garden, was amazing to watch. View attachment DSCF0097.mp4

My trail cam got one flying off with a magpie about 3 weeks ago!

My missus throws a cupful of bird seed out onto the back lawn for the birds. Problem is it started growing and the grass is fucked now ?

Give it time. The Tits (steady Shrink) love the peanuts, other wee birds prefer seeds. The fat balls I notice are for Robins, Sparraes and wee birds. Make a wee birdtable for thrushes, blackies, doos and suchlike, they can work the bird feeders normally. Paddy will no be helping like.
They do brighten the mood, for sure.
Until Woody comes along and bullies the rest.
When it first appeared it was the peanuts that got hammered, but he/she must be getting lazy because it's the fat balls that get decimated now.
There is a Sparrowhawk comes along occasionally. He puts the shits up everything in the air.

Might be a good idea to have a weekly check in for those struggling even if its just to vent?
Good idea. I haven't really followed the advice given on here previously about getting out for a walk this week cos the weather's been so awful. Kinda feel like just hibernating till the sun comes oot and the pandemic is over.

I was brain washed into thinking working additional because you were in the house and it would keep you occupied and help mental illness. I can safely say it’s the exact opposite
How are you doing? I saw an article the other day about the extra hours people are working in lockdown and thought of your posts. Seems to be a pretty widespread problem.

Dodging along waiting on paper work for a new position. Have a bit guilt leaving through a project but still doing average 60 hour week in the last 2 weeeks which has calmed down a bit. Think I’ll be in a bit better mindset once the move and more time to exercise and not think about work every minute of the day.

Good stuff, all the best with the new role.

Some days we would be at the laptop from 07:00 until 10:00... brutal it’s not uncommon for guys to do 12-15 hours for 3 months on live campaigns
I’ve been there masel but thankfully just binge watching Granny Porn rather than being forced to by a wank employer. Glad you’ll soon be away from it.

Anyway, wish you all the best and Fuk the Hearts ?

Good advice mate.
I’m sure this will help Fife and many others who may be struggling a bit but not brave enough to put their hand up to it like Fifehibs has done.

Any links to the granny porn?
Asking for a friend.

Sorry to hear so many of you are struggling. I am one of the lucky ones who has managed to work throughout and that helps a lot. Does get boring not having anywhere to go to on a day off but I have a couple of friends I can meet and
go for a walk with etc.

It is my ex wife who suffered mental health issues in the past and they have returned big time and this lock down has not helped at all. I had to bite the bullet and push for medical/psychiatric help as it was/is affecting my work and rest times. Everything seems so magnified when you cannot get some relief for a while and for her she cant even wander about a charity shop for an hour.

Hope all your days get better and as Aggie said, Jack Ross gives us something to smile about.

Probably against the rules but I go back to my flat once a week. Fuck 'em I'm on my own, so the only risk is the bus back, and once I get my bike back on the road it won't even be that.
Anyway my point. If you go to my flat ,there's a walkway between the Macdonalds in Gorgie Rd and Aldi and if your lucky amongst the trees you will spot a white squirrel. I spotted it today but unfortunately my phone would be way at the bottom of my bag. I have taken photo's before but it is not very clear. But if I can capture decent shots I will put them on here.
