The Bustard Inn Sign
The Bustard Inn Sign
The Great Bustard is the largest European bird resembling a turkey. It has been extinct in Britain since 1840 but attempts are being made to re-introduce it on Salisbury Plain, very near to where this pub is to be found. 'Bustard' is from Latin avis tarda 'slow bird' which is an insult to the bird that can run and fly very fast.
