The Great Bustards v The Great Bastards.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Well it seems the EU has stepped in and made a Life+ Funding grant of£80,000,000. so that the Great Bustard can once again roam the reaches of Southern England.
    The official statement was thus:- Thanks to the EU+ Life programme the Great Bustard once a very common sight in the sky's of southern England will once again be seen, the Bustard was hounded to Extinction.

    My question is do you think the EU+ Life programme might do the same for the Fleet Air Arm, which also was a common sight in the sky's of Southern England and was also hounded and hunted to extinction by successive governments.:toothy10:
  2. You can't shoot a wafu out of the sky with a good quality air rifle, a great bustard however......
  3. Why?..........................
  4. Do you mean why can't you shoot down a petrol pigeon or why shoot a bustard????
  5. Why can't you shoot down wafu's, are they a protected species now. I've "shot down" quite a few in the past.:toothy10:
  6. They're a protected species now as numbers have fallen to dangerous levels.
  7. Surely, more than one, is a dangerous level
  8. Surely one is too many?
  9. 21_ Man and LujonSA you're not Nick and David are you?:toothy10::toothy10:
  10. Maybe we should capture the few remaing speciemens and put them in a zoo somewhere? or have them stuffed and mounted in a museum..... Discuss

    edited for cr*p spelling
  11. I get the impression that the fixed-wing lot have already been stuffed disgust
