Not you ANBU (as long as you don't)!

Water pistols required, very therapeuticgrin

YAsoooooooBU.They are not fighting,they are mating so produce lots more of the nasty little cackling maniacs which attacked my neighbours elderly cat.
There needs to be loads more so that when they swoop in front of my car-and they wait for me I'm sure-and I say "helloMrMagpieand how'syourwifetoday" under my breath;then I can find a second one easily.
Or another 4 or 5.(Rather have silver or gold than a secret)!

whysolat i know! i know! drive me crazy.

I have looked into silencing them wink, but the bloody things are protected.

Also they are the most awful bullies to other birds.

I'm soooo tired! DC3 normally gets up at 6am so I never fall back to sleep properly.

I. Hate. Them! (more than I hate mushrooms, and to be fair thay have never done anything to me!)

They are mating, please no shooting they are doing as natured intended. Try living by the sea we've the seagulls to contend with, count yourself very lucky.

I would never harm them but I'm finding it hard to think of a more annoying noise! (apart from slurping, people chewing their nails, Tim Westwood's voice and my neighbour doing "oosh oosh" noises whilst pretending to box in the middle of the street! hmm)

Me too! Noisy fuckers.

To add to my morning cacophony, I have pheasants (surprisingly noisy) and about 5 very quacky ducks - aargh!

I don't remember it being so bad last year. When will it stop!?!?!?!?!?!

Hells Bells, mating?!?! Noooooooooooooooooo!!!

Get an airgun and be done with it. Noisy bastards. How dare they?!

By the way, Flents do some really good latex earplus. Dont bother with the crappy foam ones. I had noisy neighbours for years and just love to hear the birds myself!
