Twitcher in the Swamp

"Bird flu is coming, they say. In France and Holland they are rounding up the free-range chickens and driving them indoors. In Romania, Turkey and Russia thousands of migratory wildfowl have reportedly been shot. Our own dea Chief Medical Officer, whos name escapes me but which sounds like Sir Donald Duck, warns that a quarter of us may catch the dread disease. And 50,000 of us will die. That is, supposing the Government gets the vaccine sort out in time."
