The title quote from Chairman and Founder of The Great Bustard Group, David Waters,  when speaking about the reintroduction of the world's heaviest flying bird back into Britain 172 years after it died out here. The Great Bustard can grow to be the size of a roe deer and are being released in the Salisbury Plains (just hope the army doesn't use them for target practice then - Ed).

I'm also not sure that putting the line "The Great Bustard was hunted to extinction in Britain in the 1830s, partly because its succulent and delicious meat was so sought after by the nation's chefs" was necessarily a good move either. If it's that tastey, and that rare, I'm sure a few people will want a bite after reading that!

I must admit, I started to feel hungry when I read that line last night... ;)
