went to Chew Valley Lake for a walk and to see what birds were about. got to the bird hide soaked from the rain , all the viewing ports were closed and when i opened one, it made a noise like a gun going off . just managed to catch a glimpse of hundreds of birds flying off in a panic . got even wetter walking back.
My god man do you not realise how much trauma you have caused those poor birds. I had a mallard turn up at my workshop crying its eyes out and in desperate need of counselling. Any way I sympathised then wrung its neck and had it roasted with some orange sauce. Its an ill wind as they say
