    Nest in the East

    A few of us heard a lot of squawking during the second half yesterday that sounded at closer quarters than the seagulls on the pitch. Looked up and noticed what you see in th attached pictures (taken into the sun hence the poor quality) - looks like we have some guests! Hope they’ve got season tickets 😉

    One particular flying rat jettisoned an impressive amount of guano on a bombing raid into the Famous Five lower before KO much to the amusement of some in the FF upper!

    We need a plastic owl...

    Now if someone's willing to sneak into the ground once a day for a few days, something like that could be arranged. There was a prank pulled by US college student football fans in the sixties that could be adapted here.

    Every day at 12pm, get a bunch of discarded food, spread it about the west half of the South Stand, and stand back while someone in the centre circle blows a referee's whistle. Let the seagulls have their lunch.

    Keep doing that until the birds get the message that whistle at noon is lunchtime, thanks to positive reinforcement learning, Pavlov style...

    On matchday, sit in your seat, relax, and wait for kick off...

    It was some splatter. I'm at the front of the upper and that bird had some ass on her.

    I am absolutely astonished that this thread hasn't turned into 5 pages of puns. I am thankful though..the purile obsession with puns on this forum has been like an Albatross around our neck for too long. Every time it happens it's like a sparrow through my heart. If it does happen again I'll just have to peck myself up and try to peregrine and bear it !

    Why do people get their knickers in a twist and constantly crow on about bad puns?
