A birder I knew got quite flustered He really was keener than mustard. This came to an end one April weekend when he got kicked in the teeth by a Bustard.
There was a wealthy birdwatcher from Doha who booked a self drive bird trip to Goa. There was a big hitch he drove into a ditch and lost his Leicas, Manfrotto and Kowa.
There was an old birder called Drew who had a penchant for Pochard and Smew. Eyebrows were raised when he said he liked braised but he also would have them in stew.
