Buzzard Update

Joggers hurt in buzzard attacks - Telegraph: "t is like a scene from Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, with unsuspecting victims swooped on by avian attackers.

Stuart Urquhart, a solicitor from Bristol, was on holiday with his wife and two children in Helford, Cornwall, when he suffered three six-inch cuts to his head in a buzzard attack.

Mr Urquhart, 36, was jogging on a quiet lane near a river at around 9am, when he felt a searing pain in the back of his head before turning around to see a buzzard flying away."

Can you blame the buzzard? The man looks cadaverous.

Cap' Bob beat me to it, though I was going to quip that that was the way most guys in the UK look. LOL Wasn't that guy in a zombie movie munching on some gizzards?


I thought about looking into this house when I saw the story a couple of years ago:
