We've installed a couple of Finch Feeders in the garden - they have tiny little holes which only the delicate pointed beaks of the small Finches can penetrate. Those obese fat-arses, the collared Doves, can only waddle up and down moaning and claiming to be a victim of glandular problems but they still won't get their fat beaks inside this baby.
I may have suggested it before but it would take just a simple Act of Parliament to proclaim that all McDonalds and other Fast-Food Outlets have a maximum public door width of 18" to solve the obesity crisis at a stroke. The only possible problem I forsee with this plan is that fat people would starve themselves silly to get into McDonalds but then eat mega-loads of Whopper-Burgers and get trapped inside. Plus we smug non-porkers would have to fight our way through crowds of aggressive fat beggars in order to get into the store.
Dave will soon be posting lots of pictures of colourful skinny birds with his new 500mm lens so I thought I'd get in first with this one taken just a few feet away with an ordinary lens and a remote control shutter release.
