Here’s one more for you tonight. A daft looking bird if ever there was one, and yet those legs can do 45mph (70kph), faster than any other bird (on land, anyway). They’re reputed to be quite intelligent, and not at all stupid like people think. Oh, and they don’t bury their heads in the sand ….
I’m going to post some other pictures of daft looking birds tomorrow – a real insight to some UK species in ways you might never have seen them before.
