Just out of interest and a laugh really but what rural, local, wildlife related sayings do you know? I was reading an article back along on the BBC website about the loss of local dialects and sayings its such a shame. I recon there's plenty of you on here with some good-uns. But for a start here's a couple;
I was once warned about a rain storm coming in by an old farmer - "ere nipper look at that there sky - it's blacker than a crows eye..."
A bit ruder this one but made me chuckle. I was up the pub after a days beating we'd had a few by now and this old lad nudged me and pointed to this young lady who was well within ere shot and said in a load voice "ere nipper I bet she's wetter than an otters pocket!"
So anyone got any others?
