AN ECCLES TRAGEDY

You are a robin. You are born in Norway sometime in 2003. Once you are fledged, you fly around a bit but are caught at the Revtangen bird observatory near Stavanger.

The people there stick a ring on your leg and give you a number: 4E09140. But then they let you fly away into those clear Nordic skies.

You fly around a bit more. Then, driven by some mysterious urge, which only a fellow Norwegian robin could understand, you decide to set off on a 15-hour, 400-mile flight to Britain, where you become only the 40th Norwegian robin to be spotted since records began in 1909.

For some reason, you decide to head for Greater Manchester, where no Norwegian robin has apparently been seen before. Or perhaps that is where you stop for a rest because it has been a long flight.

You land in the garden of a bird lover in Eccles. And then, reports the Manchester Evening News, you are eaten by her cat.

Life can be cruel sometimes.

exactly!

I'm sorry but did no-one else find it funny. The bird flies hundreds of miles, only to get taken out by a mancunian house cat.
