Sir: After reading Pam Ayres (Another View: "Permit me my wrinkles", 13 October), I was reminded of an exquisite piece of conversation I overheard in August between two birdwatchers at Spurn Point on Humberside.
First birdwatcher: "I've just seen a redshank."
Second birdwatcher: "Who
telled thee it were one?"
It made my day!
