1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Just seen my first sparrowhawk. I live in county durham. It just pinched a collared dove i had just shot. Beautiful golden eyes. I watched it thru my scope from 20m for a few mins before it took off with the dove and landed a few hundred metres away. Unfortunately my dog then went and pinched it back from her.

    I wonder how differcult it would be to build a camera into a rifle scope ?

    Out of all the things that happen in the countryside, I reckon its the hunter who see's most.

    Great to see isn't it!
    I have seen a few red kites around Barnard castle down to cockfield way ,which is promising due to there reintroduction.

    I saw a owl once swoop down on a large rat and take it away up tow law.

    Nature is fascinating!

    I love it when you see nature at work!

    I used to like watching the bunnys out the front of where i used to work, sometimes you got lucky and would see one get snatched by a falcon!

    I also came home to this guy munching his snail supper the other night.
    Didnt give a toss i was stood 2 feet away with a torch!!

    Slightly different scenario but was once fishing at an ex carp syndicate I was a member of at the time. Had the place to myself, Sat watching the water. A family of coots swam past on the far bank approx 25 yards away. I remember cursing under my breath as s the place was alive with them at the time. Anyone who carp fishes will know where I,m coming from. Out of the blue, a large bird of prey (later identified as a marsh harrier) swooped from behind my peg and plucked the last chick out of the water. Amazing to see.

    I used to scoff of the likes of the duke of Edinburgh being a conservationist and a hunter but since picking up an air rifle and trying to kill cute little animals my knowledge and love for nature has increased exponentially
