    Hi Bob, yes the Griffon belongs to Hayling Island Model Club Member Mike.
    The club are a great bunch of guys with a wide range of model knowledge and I enjoy being able the share media from such an enthusiastic club.
    Rob is the website manager who sent me the video clip - I thought it too good not to share through my RCSailing channel while experimenting with "Youtube shorts".
    P.S my channel is not monetarised - its just for fun.

    The problem seems to have worsened with the ever increasing population of Canada Geese !!.
    I recall reading a paper some time ago about the damage , nuisance and public health problems that these wild birds cause when 'domestically'
    encouraged . Just how much of this is fact I wouldn't know , other than nothing gets done untill there is a serious incedent in relation to the "Problem".

    Usually the annual weed problems come and go - but this year things look worse than ever in many areas around the UK.
    Is it that Councils and Park management consortiums don't know what to do - or do they need help ???๐Ÿค”
