There was a new twist in the Yewtree saga today as details began to emerge of an undercover operation investigating a known 'bird watcher'. Bill Oddie, a once-popular children's presenter from the 1970s, is thought to have a 'dark side'.
There are accusations that Oddie liked to hide in the bushes, 'sneaking up on birds' and staring at them intrusively. Oddie has boasted of his exploits and openly admitted to 'twitching' while staring avidly through binoculars at his unwitting targets, some of whom were described as 'sitting ducks'.
A former victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said 'It is outrageous that he is still allowed to call us 'birds' in this day and age. We are hens or pens. Although he likes a nice cock too.' She added darkly.
Criminal charges are thought likely after fellow 'enthusiasts' tweeted about Oddie's 'titcam', which is now known to have beamed hardcore video into the homes of 'subscribers'. Gratuitous reporting of 'great tits' and 'blue tits' has outraged guardians of moral decency. Worse, footage has even been broadcast by a complicit BBC showing Oddie creeping through the undergrowth stealthily, 'breathing hard' and uttering such statements as 'Cor! Look at these chicks!'
