Bird on wallNow you do see some strange things these days on launch events, but nothing prepared us for what lurked around a hairpin bend in The Pyrenees.

 

We slowed the rather lovely Jaguar XF to approach a hairpin bend on a route that is used by cyclists on the Tour De France but as we turned there was a giant vulture sat right in our path. It stood at least two-and-a-half feet high and my first thoughts - don’t ask me why - was “Oh it’s a set of golf clubs!  Specsavers beckons.

As we edged slowly closer it moved gracefully and rather casually across to the wall at the side of the road.

 

I suggested, to no avail, that my co-driver David Miles stand next to it so we could get a sense of scale, but he seemed unwilling and eventually he flew away, the bird that is.

But not before I managed to capture him on my trusty phone.

It seems the bend is known for vultures, although not many people see them as close up as we did.

All I can add is – it’s little wonder those cyclists go so fast.
