Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to complain about the vast rise in savage wrens in my area. I don’t understand why the council can’t sort out the problems. Several of my good friends have had similar experiences, last Wednesday morning my neighbourly chum Mrs Thwarpe put out the rubbish, and by late afternoon it had been taken, we presume by these avian fiends. The problem is really getting out of hand.

Yours Mrs Hwashi, from the town street

p.s. The psychopathic larks are also becoming an issue.
