Twitcher in the Swamp

"As a member of several wildlife charities, I have long become resigned to shaking their magazines free of junk before opening them. If, like me, you are often deluged with unwated flimsies and glossies, here's a useful tip. Don't even think of opening the envelope without taking proper precautions. Grasp the hing end of the thing between finger and thumb. Then, steadying a wastepaper basket between your knees, give it a sharp tap. With luck, the shiny nature of the junk will ensure it a short, expeditious journey to the bottom of the basket. Then you can get on with reading the journal's thrilling contents."
