Spin

I read a great deal of bird related material on the net often coming across the same stories in several different places. It never ceases to amaze me the spin and difference in emphasis that can be placed upon the same press release or story, take these two for example from The Scotsman and Birdwatch respectively. Now I could make a few cliched references to the inhabitants of the nation from which the former publication emanates being miserable and dour and this impacting upon the way they perceive their news or the way the news is presented to them but I wont. Just read the two and judge for yourself which one you would rather have with your porridge.
