It’s fair to say most people know not to get too close to massive artillery guns while they are firing.
Sadly the birds remain ignorant of this fact, which is why Edinburgh castle almost inadvertently declared war on the avian kind recently.
Graham Anderson was visiting the famous Scottish landmark recently and was lucky enough to witness the firing of the one o’clock gun.
A bird with poor timing decided to fly over the battlements just as the gun was let off, scaring the life out of it.
The guns do not fire real ammunition, otherwise the tourists would have witnessed their real power (and probably a bit of blood as well).
Thankfully the bird looks fine and even manages to fly away from the castle.
But will he be back for revenge? Only time will tell…
