Fat Balls of Old England

From a chilly and snow-covered British Isles I give you the quote of the month, courtesy of nature journalist, national treasure and newly twittering knight of the realm David Attenborough…

“The severe snow is bad news for the uk bird population. I got my fat balls out in the garden at the moment, I suggest you all do the same!”

Oh how I wish I could immortalise in graphic form the image that cannot for the life of me be expunged from my warped imagination.

I do so hope that the goodly Sir David doesn’t catch frostbite. The loss, to both him and us, would be incalculable.
