The School Run Mums and the Eagle
The Ghost Writer was whinging when he got here tonight to see us, he says he was trying to get out of the car park of the big grey office but it involves crossing the traffic that turns right. However at the time all the mums from the school run were in the queue and all looked the other way staying bumper to bumper so he could not get across them to turn left. In the end he gave up and went the other way out and did a detour. He is not a fan on mums on school runs and says they are ********** rude ***** ******** selfish ****** drivers, but to make matters worse once he did get out of town (20mins to do a quarter of a mile) he got stuck behind a really slow car. Well it was slow until he indicated to overtake, then it would speed up from 25 to 55 then at the slightest bend or if traffic was coming the other way they panicked and slowed down to 25 again. Still he is here now and grumbling……. A bit, OK a lot.
Anyway we were all sitting drinking our cups of tea as the Ghost Writer stuck pins in a wax doll of a mum on a school run who was turning right when a huge big bird flow over head, We think it might have been a red kite but if it was it was a damn big one, no really big. I was running about with the camera trying to get a picture of it but not really with much luck. It appears the best way to take pictures of animals and birds in the wild are in a camouflaged hide with a huge zoom lens and lots of patience. Not running about with a little digital camera with no zoom and everyone shouting its behind the cherry tree o no sorry the big black horse Ah…… O no it has gone behind the queue of school mums who are all screaming because one of them appears to have huge pins sticking out of their head and the bird has run off with little serendipity their daughter. I never did get a proper picture of the monster bird just one from miles away I tried to blow-up the picture like in the movie (again) but sadly it looks like a crow and it was a huge beast. The good news though is the Ghost Writer has cheered up.
