Tales from the Riverbank (2)

My wife dragged me along to the Barnes Wetlands Centre the other day for a little wildlife spotting. Not much to offer for the beer lover but I did learn that Pedigree is named after the French for a crane's foot - pied de grue.

Spotted a couple of griffins in the local pub, The Red Lion. (Is a griffin a bird ?) but also spotted a cuckoo in the griffin's nest. Nestled alongside the London Pride and the ESB was the lesser spotted Timothy Taylor Landlord Bitter surely a stranger in such surroundings.
