MUCH amuse­ment has been caused in Bow­ness-on-win­der­mere dur­ing the re­cent hard weather by the lake swans de­cid­ing that they could gain an eas­ier liv­ing on land. They took to the land, and went, with an un­gainly, ‘tanky’ wad­dle, up the main street each morn­ing to the near­est cafe, where the kind-hearted pro­pri­etor an­swered their ap­peal with a lit­tle nour­ish­ment. It was funny to see the swans ap­par­ently try­ing to read the tar­iff through the win­dow.—louis Her­bert
