How bizarre!!!

How would a bird capture an octopus?  They don't swim out in the open, they hide in rocks in the ocean.  A bird wouldn't be able to dive and search and bring an octopus up, they don't go quietly!  lol

There are some birds that can dive up to ten feet.  Not counting pengins.  I don't know if any of them live in england.  Of course the octo. could been in shallower water.  But a bird would travel in a straight line between nest and ocean.

I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other Mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the Mormon faith. Thanks for caring and if you don't peace be with you.

A sick/injured/dead one would float about on the surface? Easy pickings for a bird of prey I would think.

Yes, but what bird would do that?


Obviously a swallow.  An African swallow, but not a European, of course..

Well, I was walking with a GF in some woods once foraging for stuff, wild berries, fruits etc, and we came across a frozen salmon, no kidding. we just looked at each other with open mouths for while trying to work out how the heck it got there. We were not on a main path either. It had been gutted, and there was newspaper in the open belly, but folded carefully rather than scrunched up, and it too was frozen in place

It was most strange and hadnt  melted so couldn't have been there long. And no it wasn't packaged, just a whole salmon...frozen!!

I thought later on to go back there and see what was in the paper, if anything, but I never did.

It wasn’t the miners who got rich; it was the people selling picks and shovels. Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored
It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me... It's all the rabbit poop you stumble over on your way down...

Still a fair old flight from the ocean in distance and height.  Then the silly begger just dumped it after all that effort.

Very likely a bird did take it there, but what is shocking is this:

Volunteers removed 10 bags of rubbish from the mountain during the pick


What is wrong with people? Anyone caught dropping rubbish should be banned from natural spaces, send them back to their ghettos!
There were about 15 teenagers the other day in the park "hanging out', when they left the place was littered with rubbish, this is our next generation, their parents should be frogged marched to the area and made to pick up the rubbish in front of their kids, show an example on how its done for a change.
A little bit of respect for nature is all what is called for, is that really too much to ask in a day and age when humans are polluting everything in their path?

Heh, I wasn't shocked about the amount of garbage. A cemetery and park area I've helped clean up is less than half a football field in size, and we hauled out 10 bags of garbage more than once a year. Litterbugs are everywhere :(
I was a little surprised to think a bird of prey would drop it's food and not come back for it, if a bird of prey is how the octopus got there.

Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.

Sadly, the number of people who get your reference are dwindling.
