Before I forget what I just calculated, UK gas prices today are $10.24c a Gallon. So, I’m VERY happy with $3.41 (yes, it went down again!). The other thing to note is that UK gas prices (we call it ‘petrol’) NEVER go down. This constantly going up and down in price that I see over here baffles me! Also, a UK (and perhaps Canadian??) Gallon are 4.5 litres and not 3.78 as they are in the USA, so you’ll have to divide that figure by 1.2026. Still, it’s nearly 3 times the price!
Jo: No, I don’t think asking about the cause of death of “#10” is inappropriate although I think they’d have already said why if they wanted us to know. Maybe someone shot at it in the air?
Yes, I actually drove by the Suwanee RSP on I-10 yesterday!
As for Hawks! Well, your Sharpie story is weird! I have a hawk story from today too. I went to NCBG and saw very few birds. I think this is more down to today’s weather than the hawk in the story, but who knows? Anyway, into the gardens came a Cooper’s Hawk carrying its dinner. It was very tricky for me to get an angle to ID the victim but eventually I got to see the head and it looked like a Red-bellied Woodpecker! However, closer examination of the photos later at home on the pc show it to be an Eastern Bluebird. There are quite a few around the neighbourhood at the moment.
Didn’t see many birds today and those I did were fairly standard ones, but I did get 11 Mourning Doves outside my window this afternoon (I rarely see more than 2). And later (in the Superstore parking lot) I saw what I think were two racing pigeons. They both had odd (non-Rock Pigeon) markings and one seemed to have a yellow plastic leg-ring. Who would bother to band a Feral Pigeon?
No worthwhile pictures today.
