Credit crunch kills Kingfisher!

Today we must sadly report the first bird victim of the credit crunch. Kingfisher SB35872 was originally ringed at Higham Marshes in Kent in December 2007. Over the next year, it apparently took a regular shortcut through a local factory, which was conveniently open seven days a week.

But as the credit crunch hit, the factory has been forced to close for three days a week, trapping the Kingfisher inside. It was found dead yesterday when the factory reopened - a sad demise for such a stunning bird.

RIP SB35872...
