Keep watching the skies

Apologies for the light blogging of late, this may be a trend that continues for a while! Anyway, the News Shopper has two bird related articles that made me smile this week and I thought I'd pass them on.

First we have the vital news that Swans and chicks (or is it signets?) have been snapped using a zebra crossing. Glad to see they are being road safety conscious and crossing in the correct place.

Can't be too careful where the young ones are concerned.

That probably sounds snarky but I'm all for a bit of froth in my paper as long as it doesn't take over. Very cute pics.

The second piece is on the front page (although don't forget to check out the hilarious pictures in the associated story). Killer crows? Picking off joggers? With what - a sniper rifle?

Click on the pic for a clearer image which will tell you that this menace has a "grudge against blondes"... now I don't mean to cast doubt on the News Shopper's journalistic credentials but I may retain a little bit of healthy scepticism on this one.

The official advice against this "deranged" bird that could end up killing someone? "Wear a hat".

Glorious comedy gold. Thank you News Shopper.
