'FORUM FRIENDS, WILDLIFE-FROM-WHEREVER' (Off-season, all cams off at Loch Garten)

  • Well done and thank you, WENDY. This stream can be downloaded but it would have to be done in a different way from my other downloads so I'm not going to be able to accommodate it, purely due to the time/attention it would require.

    Thank you for good wishes, GARDENBIRDER, I am still trying to digest our dear CC's last message :'(

    LISA - I think CATLADY has stipulated that "anything goes" here ;) so thank you very much for that link - more devastation and suffering :'(

    I am healthy in body, but my dearest friend is not, as we discovered at Xmas, and I may lose her soon. I've also simultaneously lost my 10 yr relationship, and am devastated. My distraction from this is accompanying my friend on her medical appts locally and at a distance. We are each other's moms, and in that we are very fortunate.

    My friends here are a balm to me I cannot express. Seeing the birds and critters and comments refreshes me in ways nothing else can...strange!
    So bless you all, I am leaning on you, I'll be in and out as I can here!

  • In reply to CC:

    CC, So sorry about your two tragedies. Dealing with them one at a time is awful enough and two at once is worse, unless, as you say, one is distracting you from the other. You will be in my thoughts and I imagine in those of everyone else on this thread. As some used to say in the 60s, 'Keep on keeping on'!'

    Kind regards, 

    Ann

  • CC, I am so sorry to read about your dear friend and your relationship problems. It is so hard to have to deal with something major, let alone have two very hard things to try and cope with at the same time. I can only add to what the others have said and say, try and stay strong, get your courage and strength from somewhere and keep on going, however hard it is. We are all here, thinking about you, so just you pop in and out when you feel that you can and we will try and cheer you up. CL x

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Hi CC, really sorry to read your sad news. Sending you strength, good wishes and a virtual shoulder. Lisa
  • There was sad news from the Bald Eagle Nest in SW Florida, Harriet and M15’s little eaglet died overnight. I’ll try to post the links but not too good at that so bear with me. The fabulous CROW rehab Center retrieved its remains earlier today to determine cause of death but the thought is that the poor little thing got entangled with a fish hook.

    I get these informative e-mails periodically and thought I'd share this one (I hope this is the correct forum for doing so).

    What a wonderful piece of research, thanks for sharing Lisa. It gives some hope that species can recover but of course, should not distract our efforts from doing what we can to play a part in the climate change/biodiversity challenges.

    Oh no, oh no! I am just home to this terrible news and feel so sad. I've watched this nest for a number of years but haven't been able to look in these last few days. I'm afraid I can't watch the videos but thank you for sharing the links anyway. I'm gutted.
