Newtyle Beat River Tay Wee Birdie

It's not often something like this happens to you when your fishing. This sand martin (click photograph to enlarge) landed on my rod and despite several attempts to shake it off it wouldn't move. Eventually I dipped it's tail feathers in the river and it flew off to re-land 30 seconds later 2 feet up the rod above the cork handle !!!!!! I was sure that someone was in the bushes with a remote control !!!
