The busttards taste great, apparently, especially if you get them young.

Rarely seen any distance from sources of easy prey, there are now two types of bustard in the UK. The first will nab passing frogs and the second uses a beak to nab passing motorists.

Don't worry, there won't be many left, no matter how spelt, if they get near the bird mincers that the green environmentalists love to erect all over the countryside to farm the subsidies.

Not being a bird man, are they BUZZARDS or BUSTARDS? And, if they were hunted to extinction, how did they come back?

Weren't Great Bustards last 'reintroduced' back in the 1980's?

I think I have seen a buzzard over St. Albans this spring. Should the headline have read as: "once-extinct"? Suck that spill chucker.

Did you..?! ;)

"...there won't be many left, no matter how spelt, if they get near the bird mincers that the green environmentalists love to erect all over the countryside to farm the subsidies."

Yet the RSPB doesn't think they are a problem. Green hogwash blinds everything these days.

"Not being a bird man, are they BUZZARDS or BUSTARDS? And, if they were hunted to extinction, how did they come back?"

The latter. AS Bill Sticker points out, they've been the focus of rewilding attempts for a while now. Periodically, one hits the news.
