The Borve Crow

While I am on holiday anywhere I enjoy reading the local newspaper. Up here it is the Stornoway Gazette. The funniest story last week (though not funny for those affected by it) was the tale of the Borve Crow.

A crow decided to build its nest on top of an electricity pole. After all, there are not a lot of trees around Borve! Unfortunately it also decided to use odd scraps of barbed wire for its nesting material. This resulted in the electricity board having to cut off the power supply to 1500 people in order to dismantle the nest. The Borve Crow was, however, a persistent so-and-so and the power supply had to be cut off for a number of days in succession as they destroyed the nest each morning only to find it rebuilt the next day. The saga continues….
