Won't anyone think of ...
... the vultures?
Conservation groups have greeted with "euphoria" the hatching of the first Great Bustard chicks in the UK since the last hatchling was spotted in Suffolk way back in 1832. Two females among a group of Great Bustards reintroduced to Salisbury Plain were photographed over the weekend with their young - a milestone in the long-term …
... the vultures?
Wheres the IT angle
taste like chicken?
Sounds like there's some good eating on one of those!
1) Some bustard has made a crop circle in my bottom field. Arrrr.
that I always welcome great-busted chicks.
Yes, the dirty mac. Cheers.
...times can someone mention 'Bustard' in such a short story..?
Anyway, that aside, can I be the first to welcome our newly introduced, slightly-naughty-sounding-named, ornithological overlords.. etc..
Lets have a British bird on the Reg!
...there'll be a complete pack of bustards!
Or is that flock?
the Dodo next?
Have any of the green wellied bird brigade actually wondered WHY a bird that builds nests on the open ground in an otherwise emptyish plain has become rare ?
They look delicious!
That is one fat bustard.
I'm a little unclear on the IT angle here - is there some link between a bustard and a freetard? Or does the term bust refer to Miss. Hilton's chest area (which anyway I assume would not be free but paid)?
Can they run for election? They'd have to be better than the current set of b*stards in the House of Commons.
I for one welcome (cont p94)
In bed with your mum, AC. In bed with your mum.
"to see Great Bustards breeding after an absence of 177 years is brilliant"
Wow that's a LONG dry spell!
Is there any real need to explain the PH icon here?
It's "Gert" Bustard round here anyway.
What happened to the last lot then? There was a re-introduction of this same species back in the 70's when I lived in Wiltshire
"Have any of the green wellied bird brigade actually wondered WHY a bird that builds nests on the open ground in an otherwise emptyish plain has become rare ?"
Nothing to do with their nesting habits, I suspect. There are many other birds with similar nesting habits, however they don't weigh 20Kg. Could their local extinction be something to do with them being hunted for their meat? After all a 20Kg bird is going to feed more folk than a brace of pheasant.
.... That'd be a parliament then.
Yeah, the one with the gravy stains down the front.
Bustard Otis From Hell? Looks like Simon has some competition......
"the project releases between six and 32 young birds reared from eggs"
Don't you mean the project releases between six and 32 young bustards?
