Hold the front page!

A "Jackdaw" writes..."I was not trapped, I was just chillin' out. But I appreciate the heroic firemen and the UK press interest. And if the Daily Mail is interested....text my agent...usual fees, left profile."

Probably meant as a "feel good" or comedy post, certainly not taken seriously by the meagre coverage, but its missed the point.

Slow news day?

Jackdaws now account for c.45% of the Argus's circulation...85% of the on-line edition.

They esp. like Rosemary Butler's "think" pieces. Not to be missed.

Rosemary Butler and "think" in the same sentence? First time for everything.

"Do you think this is a good use of firefighters' time? Let us know."

Unless one is a heartless so-and-so, of course it's a good use of firefighters' time. Well done to them, that's what I say - the fire brigade are a really caring and brave bunch of people. A beautiful bird is worth infinitely more than any amount of money - it's sad that there are some people who are evidently unaware of what the truly worthwhile things in life are.

I think there's a film in this! Say, "One of our Jackdaws is down". Maybe Micheal Sheen could play the perky Welsh bird and Anthony Hopkins lead the daredevil fire crew. It would be a great boost for our new Welsh film industry and "put us on the map of the global local stage". Again.

“Do you think this is a good use of firefighters' time? Let us know”

In a word, yes. What other options are there? Let the bird dangle there until it dies with countless members of the public seeing it? Some may care if they see the bird suffer, some may not. Obviously if a more serious incident arose that required the attendance of the fire crew in question then they would be sent to it - technically known as a 'redirection'. It is also a known phenomena that if the fire service doesn't rescue trapped animals then often untrained members of the public will attempt a rescue sometimes with disastrous consequences - what would you rather Argus?

Yes of course its a good, compassionate act for a bird or indeed any animal to be rescued from danger, I have no problem with it at all.

Just had a second thought, I would much rather the fire service perform humanitarian acts such as this than have to run around after the slack jawed cretins who set our mountainsides on fire.
