      not allergic, but a single piece of popcorn will kill a swan within 10 seconds. it can be entertaining until you realise the swan is really dead. that’s when the giggling stops.

            Recently I saw a fella sitting outside that language school at portobello harbour drinking a can of cider and minding his own business. Next thing a swan came along wham bam and took your mans head clean off. What was left of him fell into the canal

      When first mating swans become so awkward and confused that they physically fight each other before getting down to ‘it’.

        I once saw a swan rape/fight. Two young males attacked a pair that lived behind us, and one male would fight the husband (?) while the other, ahem, took care of business, then they swapped. It was horrendous to watch.

          Duck sex is horrifying. They’re not a tender bird, I can tell you that for nothin’. Well, apart from on the pan. YUM.

            cooked my first pheasant there recently
            now that’s a delicious bird
            did a kind of cider and sage combo

            Nice! I think I’ve eaten pheasant but I’ve never really cooked any game. Hmm. Actually, I definitely haven’t.
            Cider and sage? You’ve to be careful with sage, I find. Very strong.

          That took a rather culinary turn. None of you become Samaritans, for the love of god.
