Tinfoil Thief!

I had some spare boiled rice and put it out for the birds on a piece of kitchen tinfoil. I noticed that not only was the rice diminishing but also the tinfoil. I suspected magpies but then noticed a plump wood pigeon tucking into the rice and then severing a strip of tinfoil and flying off with it!
Just because you see two eyes shining in the jungle at night, do not think that the worse thing that could happen is that you are about to be attacked by a tiger. It could be two one-eyed tigers.

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

Now that you have identified the thief does this mean that you can announce that the tinfoil thief foiled?
Has anyone seen the plot, I seem to have lost mine?

Blimey Mike, it's a bit early in the year for that award - I'm sure it'll be tested over the next 10 months :lol:

Maybe you and GA are right. I'd better steel myself for some more.

Would you believe it? I looked out of the window and there's a robin doing the same thing! Are they getting grants for insulating their nests or - more likely - do they know something we don't?

They've heard about the price of scrap metal. I reckon you'd get a couple of quid for that bit of foil.
