Long Lost Bird From Hawkshead



The picture of my friend David was taken more than two decades ago. A couple of years ago he met a bird in Hawkshead (Cumbria... Beatrix Potter land) but sadly she disappeared. She being the swan, not Beatrix Potter as Miss Potter died in 1943. I digress..... It appears that the swan was found alive and well at Lough Neagh, near Belfast - see Northern Ireland (2) post below. I hate to tell Dave this but she was not alone......

Not alone, oh how could she do that to me. After all those meals we had together, watching the sunset at the edge of the lake.

OK, I was throwing crusts for her to catch, but that doesnt sound as romantic.

I'm so dreadfully sorry Dave. There'll be other birds.......

I wonder what was in that cup, it certainly doesnt look like it was tea.
