Birds of a feather. . .

Sir -- Many thanks to Joe Kennedy for his informative and humorous article about the tall, slim and long-necked bird known as the Grey Heron (Sunday Independent, August 8, 2010) -- a creature with a voracious appetite for fish, rats and frogs. However enlightening the piece was, though, it struggled to compete with articles about its very distant cousin of the hard-necked variety with an equally voracious appetite for government expenses!
