A Little Birdie Told Me!

How strange, how strange! I was out a walking when I heard a tweet from a nearby tree…..

"'Ere mad camera woman....wanna see somefing amazin'?" said Roger ( 'Round' to his friends!)

“‘Ere mad camera woman….wanna see somefing amazin’?” said Roger ( ‘Round’ to his friends!)

 

Well how could I resist such a question and I greedily said “I do!”

"Right lady...go down past the hungry squirrel...." said Round mysteriously!

“Right lady…go down past the hungry squirrel….” said Round mysteriously!

 

What could I do but follow instructions? Not far along I found the squirrel…

"Mmmmm yum lovely nut mmmm burp oops pardon hee hee hee!" muttered Cyril in between rapidly eating his nuts!

“Mmmmm yum lovely nut mmmm burp oops pardon hee hee hee!” muttered Cyril in between rapidly eating his nuts!

 

Fortunately Round followed me and gave further directions….

"Look at me....look at me. Right now I have your attention, next you gotta find the old gull with false teeth standin' on the ice!"

“Look at me….look at me. Right now I have your attention, next you gotta find the old gull who looks like he needs false teeth standin’ on the ice!”

 

My adventure continued and I soon found him….

"I'm too old for this lark." said  Gordon sadly, "My feet are freezing and quite frankly I'm sick of Round using me as a landmark for goodness knows what!"

“I’m too old for this lark.” said Gordon sadly, “My feet are freezing and quite frankly I’m sick of Round using me as a landmark for goodness knows what!”

 

I wondered what was next and I didn’t have to wait long…

"Good you're keepin' up, at least you're not as thick as you look!" said Round rather rudely in my opinion!

“Good you’re keepin’ up, at least you’re not as thick as you look!” said Round rather rudely in my opinion! “So,” he continued whilst I tried not to be offended, “Now you gotta find the pointy beaky bird sitting on the lake wiv drops of water on his back! Could be a grebe!”

Off I went once more thinking this had better be worth it.

Grebe found….

"Can a man with a hatchet face cut up a side street?" thought Geraint idly, not really knowing what he was thinking about!

“Can a man with a hatchet face cut up a side street?” thought Geraint idly, not really knowing what he was thinking about or what indeed it meant!

 

What would be next?

Where was Round?

"Oy I'm here! Keep walkin' straight ahead and that's where you'll see the ghosts of four ducks who lost their heads last winter. Their spirits come and re-visit every year around this time! Now come back tomorrow and I'll let you know what you can do for me!" said Round as he prepared to fly off!

And there, true to Round’s word, were the duck ghosts!!!!
