Last Saturday in Sauchiehall Street there was a stall being manned by the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds). This guy was handing out free bird seed to passers by, while the more sensibly dressed reps were hiding in the stall handing out leaflets and no doubt pretending they weren’t with the mad feathered guy.

Credit crunch

I have some more Celtic Connections photos to show, as thanks to a late Christmas present we were able to get to a cracking show last night (that’s why I haven’t done today’s entry on time – too knackered last night). I haven’t downloaded my photos so I’m not sure how many are any good yet, but hopefully I’ll have one or two.

For now though here’s a picture from Sauchiehall Street. Pretty familiar I reckon. Before I came here I always thought Sauchiehall Street was *the* shopping street for Glasgow, but since I’ve been here the last 3 years I’ve noticed more and more pound shops and discount stores, especially down the pedestrianised end. This photo seems to sum up the current climate, sadly.
