I was lucky enough to spend some time visiting the Cotswolds recently. This lovely little place is called Bourton-On-The-Water. Considering I’ve spent about 16 years living in England I have very little knowledge of anywhere outside London, so it was great to spend a few days away exploring. I’m pretty sure when people think of England this is the kind of place they imagine; quaint little houses, picturesque rivers and trees, rolling hills and greenery… and a shit load of birds.
On the day we were there the seagulls and ducks were having an all-out war – literally pecking each other out of the water. There were a large amount of tourists hanging around trying to capture the stillness and peace of the surroundings and the crispness of the morning, but it was impossible – the birds weren’t having any of it. Call me mean-spirited but I really enjoyed watching other peoples pictures get systematically photo-bombed by angry birds. You just can’t control nature! 🙂
