Darrell spotted it first ….. he said that he “thought” he had seen a tiny brown bird going in and out of our old fashion fishing basket we have hanging in the back garden …….
…. but wasn’t sure…..
So he made a makeshift bird hide on the porch and sat for several hours with a flask of tea and …… watching ….
….. and his patience was indeed rewarded and we do indeed have a pair of yet
undiagnosed unidentified birds living in our aforementioned fishing basket! How totes birdtastic of a nesting nature is that?
Naturally, Darrell is now very protective of “his” fledgling family…….
….. and has told a very excited Nigel in no uncertain terms that poking is totally unacceptable, but, if he is good, he can be in charge of putting the bird seed out each day…
….. a task he has embraced, and now endeavours to tip toe and whisper within the nests vicinity, bless him.
Spring is a very wonderful time, and we are honoured that the birds have come to nest with us. They have chosen a very safe spot to have their babies ….. no nasty cats will ever find them there!
