    Goo sander or merganser ?

    Now that eels are officially classified as critically endangered, on the red list and a protected species in the UK, perhaps there is more logic in controlling Goosander numbers to protect the remaining eels, given that they are Goosanders favourite food. A study analysing the stomach contents...

    Goo sander or merganser ?

    Wee fish from the Tweed

    Well done! Looks like it has been through the wars a bit. Is that a deep wound on its side?

    Goo sander or merganser ?

    In the town of Peebles where I live, we have a tributary of the Tweed (Eddleston Water) that runs through part of the town. There is a resident population of mallard that benefit from a regular supply of bread from well meaning locals. The Goosanders have joined in the party and now shove the...

    Goo sander or merganser ?

    Goosanders. Although they are a species of Merganser. Technically an invasive species but unfortunately they have become very common and well established due to the wildlife and countryside act which gave protection to all wild birds unless covered by a general license.

    I think this one was a bit worse than being told to “go home”. https://www.holyrood.com/news/view,joanna-cherry-says-snp-party-member-threatened-to-rape-her

    As far as I remember, Joanna Cherry was threatened by an SNP loyalist because she dared to speak out against the supreme leaders policy. There are obviously some dodgy folks on either side but I don’t think there is any disputing the fact that the SNP certainly has more than its fair share of...

    That’s a beauty! The SNP are now not mentioning Independence in any of their election literature, in case it puts voters off!!😂😂😂 The party’s sole purpose for existing but we will just not mention it now.🤔 So now it’s not “wheesht for Indy”? It’s “weesht or we’ll no get in”.

    It would appear that the SNP have certainly not backed the wave energy research. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/dec/09/scottish-government-accused-abandoning-wave-power

    Sadly, as we both know, these inconvenient facts will just be dismissed as scaremongering by unquestioning Indy believers. It must of course be difficult to separate fact from fiction for anyone brainwashed into believing and trusting the SNP.
