Attack! Attack!

On grandchildren duty this weekend, but the parents are in trouble already. They forgot to warn us of the attacking birds at Linlithgow Loch. There we were, duly equipped with scraps of bread and three children. As soon as the bread was produced, swans, ducks and waterfowl homed in from the water – even leaping up onto the path. At the same time a gaggle of geese ran in from landward and seagulls were diving from the sky.

Exit two red-faced grandparents, a pushchair completed with 3yr old and two more running children. This baby-sitting lark is downright dangerous.

    Freda, just be greatful that you weren’t attacked by the rats by the loch too!

  2. Freda says:

    Ruth, thank you for that – though maybe it is along the lines of too much information!

    And I do apologise for the dreadful spelling mistake. Greatful? Where on earth did that come from? As for the rats… this has been a huge problem at the loch and putting down poison which won’t affect the birds is not easy. But some of these birds are just as scary as the rats.
