While visiting Gateshead Birders website to see what's been going on "down south" i noticed that due to the current financial situation the team at Thornley Woods are unable to purchase bird food.
Hows about the councillors cutting back on the nosh they get through at their functions/ meetings and directing some of the cash savings in the direction of Thornley. I see two positives.
Fatter birds and thinner counsellors.
A win win situation..............do i have YOUR vote.
Talk about ROBIN the poor to feed the rich!
If you happen to be heading to Thornley Woods don't forget your donation / fatballs.
