Well done, Stu.Have a look guys wonderful stuff.............. seriously inspirational,sorry brief must dash saw a bit last night need to watch the rest
It is on iPlayer.Wasn't it fabulous, ha I love the way the mustedids talk to each other so cool!! I stuck me face in a hedge many years back ,as ya do and spent probably 1/4 of an hour with a family of baby weaels and mum that chatter brought it all back .
Robert's set up is somewhat sophisticated and I dare say a bit pricey to make. But incredibly inspiring for what us togs could possibly do at home. No I don't have a massive gaff in the countryside but still really inspiring These guys are tough to make an image of for most of us, probably.......... it's wonderful seeing someone work it all out. I'm always amazed by the ingenuity of wildlife togs to nab a pic or some footage
He's a talented guy Russ cheers for the little add on it must be a cracking place to visit
I wish I'd have known it was repeated as I'd have posted with more warning, it was a shame more folks didn't see that.... maybe i player??
Your picky I'm not cynical enough am I mate I just don't see it coming lmaoEnjoyed the programme, somewhat misleading title though I guess “Mustelids” wouldn’t work for TV.
Not sure it’s ’scientific’ to use the great Stoffel the Honey Badger as an example since he is hand reared and spent many years (I think he’s over 20 yrs old) perfecting his use of tools in escape attempts so not exactly a novice.
For any that haven’t seen it the bbc programme is unavailable but the Houdini clip gives a taste:
I know I’m being over critical, you can’t do everything in a TV programme , I’m just sayin’... .Your picky I'm not cynical enough am I mate I just don't see it coming lmao
You are probably right Rich,that said I sort of liked how they tried to illustrate the intelligence. They are bright bright aniimals these mustelidea I know of a little feret called mystie whom managed to escape from a bull pen( 8 foot climb),funny thing was she didn't run off she went straight to her dad's sleeping place which wasn't simply next door but a couple of hundred yards away. It's like a carbon copy of Stoffle in miniature ,mind I was utterly besotted by her and she knew it!! Sure CB and also not terribly relevent but you can almost see how bright they are with time conveying that on film, somewhat harder I guess that honey badger gave the film makers an easy option to presented to the masses how clever this group can be ,not the easiest group of animals to make images of .
That capacity to learn is remarkable,but yeah begrudgingly you are probably right
I don't have i player appreciate the input Rich ,thanks muchly............ I got alot from that programme I'd guess many others would aswell
One answer to slow internet for, say, iPlayer would be to use laptop/tablet to download in faster area (on public internet or shared Wi-Fi if your supplier offers it). On the other hand there are advantages to not wasting time watching YouTube .Not me Rich , I've never made a video and put it on line, but how fascinating,ha memory is a funny thing,the story is utterly true though!! Strangest feeling she completely had hold of me ,but no breaking of skin or pain . The programme illustrated those jaws and their emense power really well................ I did what she wanted!!
Yes very slow internet, sorry I'm so vague buddy I am what I am. Net speed,so slow it's prehistoric well that's what my lad calls it. I get confused by all the mega bytes but I think its 4MB. It is very very slow Rich what ever the correct numbers are!! Things take ages to download,PSCC updates are the bane of my life lol. The price of being between two villages I guess it's a pain mate but not the end of the world
