Happy ending

We asked two chaps who were also sitting and having a drink if they could help.

One of them got a shirt from his bag and threw it over the bird to hold it down.

My friend then asked a woman in a shop for pair of scissors.

We got the hook out, freed the bird and it immediately went for a piece of toast.

I thank my friends and the three strangers who helped us.

The bird had so much relief and so we had a happy ending.
