    There were 6 little auks down at Sandside head this morning on the rocks.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    Little Auks - Isn't that a Jimi Hendrix song?
    In mitigation Mr Bruce de Wert said his client had been drinking and could remember little of the incident.

    No, and they aren't hobbits either!

    The fact that Rheghead posted it in the Birdwatching section would rather suggest so, no?

    It as been reported that there are 29.000 of these little birds from the Arctic spread along the East coast of Britain.
    It seems they were blown in by the resent storms.
    So it may be the only time we may get to see them in the flesh so as to speak.
    So lets hope we can get some pics on the org before they find their way back North.
