I also like the bit where Gerald McGrew says he will use a bait of "three chicken croquettes made of library paste" to catch the Natch that no other hunter has been able to catch.
I had a bite to eat (no, not library paste) at Southgate on my way home tonight as I was too lazy to cook. I had a host of cheeky sparrows groaking at me while I ate and I teased them by placing crumbs right in front of me to see how game they were. They were very brave. Or very hungry.
As I walked home, I saw two ducks having a nap half way up the river bank, with their heads turned and tucked into the feathers on their backs.
A little further on I saw an old nest that had fallen from a tree.
"Cover me! I'm goin' in!"
