Is it just me or was the placing of ads by Google (which I believe is probably an automatic thing and not directly within the control of the SE1 forum) on the Sparrows in Bernie Spain Garden story really just very very wrong.
The series of photos under the main pic of a sparrow were unrecognisable orange things which when curiousity stirred me to click through revealed they are from a supplier of real birdsnests for birdsnest soup???!!!! This was on an article focussing on RSPB warnings of reduction in bird habitats.
Maybe it's just be but . . . .

So if I talk about the Sparrows that lived in bushes behind my house that have been destroyed by developers after they were refused planning permission because one of the reasons was lack of replacement habitat for an endangered species (tomorrow thursday night at the community council) Google will put adverts for birds nest soup on my post too?

Boy does their advertising need work. I wouldn't be pleased if I was paying for product placement.
