Sir, — I thought my girlfriend Meg was going mad as I drove through Rotherfield Peppard on Saturday morning during a visit to my parents in Highmoor.
As she looked out of the window of my car, I heard her scream, “Stop, there’s an ostrich!”
I drove on thinking she had either gone mad or got her dates wrong in a premature attempt at an April Fool’s joke. However, she persuaded me to turn around to prove her point. As we looked out of the window, I thought, “Oh my gosh, that is an ostrich.”
When we got home, we discovered that it was in fact a wild rhea, which is a native to South America.
I wonder how it ended up in Peppard... I hope it gets home all right. — Yours faithfully,
