    Photos are of two raptors sat in a garden in Greetham, Rutland. What are they please? Suspect the second one is an eagle Owl?

    Hee hee John n Joy, Raptor is also a naturalists term for any bird of prey.


    In his drive he also had a Bentley Estate, and XK8 and a outlander all looked new. Can't be short of a bob eh? Lucky sod. :thumb:

    I agree with the Eagle owl and Saker Falcon seems bit light coloured for a juvenile Peregrine

    Looking at the second one it could be me, its amazing as the years start to pass you by how the hairs on your eyebrows(and ears and nose) lengthen disproportionally to the hairs on your bonce!! :cry::cry:

    Fear not! You do not have hair-loss....you have reverse growth.

    It is a common problem in older males, where instead of hair growing out, it grows inwards, causing the memory to go a little fuzzy, and in extreme cases when the skull is congested with your full head of hair, it escapes from the ears and nose.

    So tell your friends - you are not going bald, but suffer from 'reverse growth syndrome'.
