I have an irrlational fear of birds. I’m not afraid to admit it. I am afraid, however, in any situation where I am within 1m of a bird, or within site of crows. Evil, horrible crows are the worst. So creepy.
I have always maintained that if anyone made a realistic re-make of Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’ it would probably be the most frightening movie you could show me.
One fine day in Elling I decided to go for a jog to the old Church I could see on the hill (Oustedkirke). On the way there, I suddenly found myself in a patch of trees full of Crow’s nests, with Crow’s squaking and circling all over the show. I was absolutely terrified. The icing on the cake was definitely the old church looking just like the movie. I tell you though, it did wonders for my fitness levels.
