Lawless herons and twisted propellers


Not only do herons eat cute little ducklings but they are also litter louts. The evidence? A rubbish bin at beak height, a heron and lots of food wrappings scattered about it. The bit of tinfoil was the clincher for me.

North of Amsterdam stand twisted propellor blades from a Wellington that crashed there in 1941. The crew had already bailed out – sadly for them over the North Sea – and the aircraft continued on its course until the fuel ran out. Today the blades look like ribbons fluttering in the breeze.
