Le petit voleur or “Carpe Panem”




I have no idea how good these photos are as they were taken and posted on a mobile phone.
What is clear is that opportunism is alive and well in the Languedoc.
Not only did this cheeky chappie make off with most of my bread ( it took him twenty visits because the slice was bigger than him) but he had the temerity to pose cutely for photos too!

Nothing seemed to concern him; the bangs and clatters of a noisy lunch service , the badly behaved children behind us, Trevor conversing with him(yes…really…) me laughing hysterically etc etc.

A bold, brave little soul whose motto is clearly Carpe Diem.

This is the latest in a series of mad, bird related incidents and I am starting to wonder if we should examine the symbolism!

Is this a life lesson? Possibly not but it was b****y funny.
Oh, and Poshbirdy? this occurred in YOUR  local watering hole…..

    Clever and fearless. Perhaps he made many forays to bring food back to some fledglings? The sort of animal “personnage” who would have inspired Beatrix Potter to pen another book!
    Yes, the photos are excellent. Don’t hesitate to use your phone to bring us impromptu moments like this!
