JEZZA SPIES ON BIRDS!
Top Gear star is a secret twitcher
PETROLHEAD telly presenter Jeremy Clarkson has been exposed as a nature-loving ENVIRONMENTALIST!
Top Gear host Clarkson has long been the scourge of tree huggers and even threatened to mow down any green cyclists he meets on the road.
But now animal expert Bill Oddie has let slip that Clarkson, 51, is a closet BIRD-WATCHER!
Twitcher Oddie, 70, accidentally revealed: “I have met Clarkson, briefly. At one of our meetings he was at great pains to tell me how he’s taken up birdwatching and – not joking – what he had in his garden.” The revelation will leave TV viewers stunned.
In 2007, the motoring journalist ruffled feathers after being shown eating an Ortolan bunting – a small bird that is overfed before being drowned in Armagnac and eaten whole.
The dish is actually banned inside the EU.
At the time he boasted: “That tasted fantastic. But we could also set new records complaints.”
The outspoken star has slammed Oddie in the past, moaning: “If Bill had his way we won’t have any cars, we’ll all be walking everywhere and we’ll grass over the car parks.”
Clarkson has also brushed global warming under the carpet, despite the fact he clearly loves wildlife in his back garden!
In one episode of Top Gear he said: “A Range Rover doing 10,000 miles a year produces less pollution a day than a cow does farting and producing methane.”
Look dear, blue
tits! Well, it IS
