Bird News: Low Flying Flamingo

Last week – when it was really windy and most of us birds hung out in places where it wasn’t so windy – the flamingos at Drusillas Zoo Park clearly didn’t get it. Not even slightly.

One of them, called Florence, was standing there minding her own business probably thinking: “Fuck me it’s windy”, the next minute she got blown away. Kid you not. Check it out. Pissed myself. Serves you right for being poncey and pink!

This is what happened, apparently:

Reckon the whole standing on one leg thing deserves a re-think for starters… mind you – word on the street is she’s having a right old time of it now stuffing her face on carbs. Fair play.

    If shes lucky she will catch a Thermal like a glider and wing it on back to Miami where she belongs.

    She might even meet a new flock of friends in someone’s yard…”FLORENCE: Hangin’ With a Plastic Flamingo Gang”.

    Fritz: Nice idea. Bet that’s where she’s headed right now – either that or she’s on her way to London Zoo where she’s heard there’s a load of fine eligable manly flamingos up for grabs…

    Pidge: Probably will – esp now she’s rememberd what it feels like to fly – the world’s her yard! Respect.

    Well it appears she’s flying in the aviary in the sky now. A fox got her. Shame really, always prefer it when the feathered variety get, well, variety.
