Police in Calshot sparrow warning
Hampshire police today released an 'artist's impression' of what they fear the crowd scenes at the village of Calshot may be like if the Spanish Sparrow remains until the weekend. Locals have been warned that a 'vast army of middle-aged men dressed like Ray Mears' might arrive on site. In a totally unrelated incident, 45-year old Ray Dobie from Gosport was arrested for possessing an illegal aviary of exotic birds, including several Dark-eyed Juncos, White-throated Sparrows and several species obtained on a recent Spanish holiday.
