Special Delivery

Stork's Chorus: Let It Beak, Let It Beak

A stork with a damaged beak has been given a new, artificial one thanks to experts at a bird hospital in Hungary. Tamas Kothay, a specialist in dental prostheses, built a new top beak out of synthetic resin. If the bird makes a full recovery it will be released back into the wild.

I saw this on the news in the 'and finally' slot reserved for life's peculiarties. I have to say that it is not a pretty sight and looks as if said stork will be delegated to delivering the prems.
