A few days ago there was a strange bird at the kitchen window. Creepy little thing it was, fluttering around, trying desperately to get in at us. It was like something out of a Hitchcock film. Really creepy, especially when it flew round the side of house to the kitchen door and tried to get in there too.
Isolated incident surely yeah? That’s what I thought too, until I read this news story about flocks of birds attacking livestock. It’s not just the occasional lamb either, but full grown sheep and cows are being attacked and left in such a state that the people who find them are left in a state of mental anguish. These birds, which normally feed on carrion and small mammals, are now attacking sheep? How long til we’re on the menu? If anyone wants me, I’ll be boarding up the windows with Tippi Hedren.
