    • Accommodation and Activities in the Picos de Europa
« on: May 20, 2007, 10:05 AM »
Following on from http://www.iberianatureforum.com/index.php?topic=322.0
I thought I'd share this with you, found while searching for barks of corzo and ciervo. Though not very comprehensive, interesting.

"Animals make much the same sounds around the world, but each language expresses them differently. English and French cows sound the same, but not in English and French! Explore the sounds of the world's languages through the sounds of the world's animals."

Confusingly you can then continue to choose a language.

Hello everybody,

A very brief response to Clive with his Andalucian dogs going, "Ow ow!"

Up here in Catalonia they go, "Gwow Gwow!"

I'll be off to do some vital research into ths and other quandries between about 1 and 3 this midday noon, so perhaps more then!

Simon

PS

The Catalan for Glug glug is Chroop chroop - at least as far as Vermut is concerned - Yzaguirre is the only brand to take, it's served on draught here!

dear All
Nothing to do with wildlife, but clocks in Spain go 'Tick Tack' as opposed to 'Tick Tock' according to my Spanish friends

Greetings Dave,
So they say, but without the "k" which doesn't figure much in Sp.
By the w., aren't you watching La2 - there's an interesting document. on water in Sp. - in this case el Duero.

Dear TP
Strange, I watched the program after I posted this, perhaps the clock on the forum is out or possibly it uses my clock, which is set to retirement time ( who cares what time it is)
Very good program, a river I know reasonably well.
Regards
Dave

Greetings Dave and All,
Yes, beautiful images of buitre leonardo in flight.
Time is relative - too good to be my own! :biggrin:
Had noticed that iberianatureforum was off by an hour, I think - UK summer time? GMT? UTC? (or whatever it's called these days - days when even Morse no longer exists  :speechless: - what is the world coming to? :-X)

Hola,

Been waiting for someone to mention the clock.....

I'll sort it as soon as the list of essential work gets done......

At some point in time the iberianatureforum will synchronise... I think...

Greetings Clive,
Had been biding my time and keeping it up my sleeve for emergencies :technodevil: ... if that bishop's mitre Adminstrator's hat of yours were to muzzle in where it wasn't wanted - what price the time? An Oh Great and Wise Adminstrator who can't even tell the time, can't tell anyone else where to get off! Now that it's been aired, will have to stock up on another retort for emergencies  >:D.
Respectful regs.
