    Starlings aren't earthing themselves to anything whereas the balloon shorted over the top earth wire and the live wires. (I think)

    Starlings stood on them cables with all that lecy going through, You can hear the buzzing when you stand near a pylon, Or when you crash into one while going backwards in a 1961 hillman minx, Oh, With Willy Brogan in the back, Keep forgeting about him,

    I remember in the "Cold War" years. A few East Germans escaped into West Germany by climbing the pylons then jumping across the gap to the wires. Hand over hand over the wall to the pylon in W. Germany and swing and let go and grab the pylon again. Don't think many made it.

    Can't read it but you get the gist...Escape
