"...'Sheep might be dumb... but they're not stupid' (News, 6 March) said that studies in Oxford showed that a Caledonian heifer called Betty had managed to bend a piece of wire to construct a hook and retrieve food from a jar. Betty is, in fact, a New Caledonian crow, a creature perhaps better adapted to bending wire than a cow."

"...Observer Food Monthly (10 July) misquoted chef Michael Caines as saying of the restaurant Andrews on the Weir, at Porlock Weir, Somerset: 'On some days, you can spot whales in the distance.' Wales would be more likely."
