'Great tits cope well with warming'
BBC secures Headline of the Week
It's beers all round for the BBC this morning who've outregged El Reg leader writers with this deliciously suggestive offering:

Not quite up to the standard...
... of "Dr Fuchs off to Antarctica", but still pretty good.
Pasris, because, well, obvious really.
