Yep, after being extinct in the UK for xyz number of years, the great bustard, a weird bird that looks like the bustard (aha ha ha) lovechild of Mr Pheasant and Mrs Turkey, is now living and reproducing in the UK. They've been released by conservationists dedicated to bringing them back to the uk - on salisbury plain. Now I know the place is big, but isn't this a bit like rescuing a family of ducks/ducklings, and releasing them onto spaghetti junction? Story here. One commenter notes that we already have a load of great bustards in Parliament .
