November 2016 // Days 330 - 336
Isn't it supposed to be Santa that comes down your chimney? Well today Baker and I got a little fright as we heard our log burner chimney rattle. I ran upstairs to see if there was something on the roof but there was nothing... I dunno what made me check but when we came downstairs I decided to open the burner door and was greeted by a gorgeous little Sparrow face covered in soot!
I made sure Baker was safe in his cage so as not to cause any extra stress to the little bird and grabbed my little fabric carrier to try and grab him for release. He wasn't keen so I let him just fly out. Of course, I thought to close the door before he flew back up but was shocked to be greeting by another beautiful little Sparrow face :O
Bless their hearts, they were just babies - first winter I expect - and were obviously startled. I'm glad it was my chimney they came down though and not someone who would be scared as I was able to help them back out to safety quickly and easily without flapping around like I've seen some videos of people do.
Can't resist saying Hi to my ducky pals <3 It's thanks to climate change that there are so many out of season babies around though unfortunately...
I could have sworn I had a photo for today, but I have searched my whole laptop and external hard drive to no avail.
Ditto the above point! I took the photo in the morning before we left for our train to London at 8pm.
Look where we are :) If there was a village that looked like this and had just one lone cottage, I'd be very happy to live my life there haha.
What a view eh? The bandstand, the tree, the garlands across Main Street, the castle and even a bird on a beautiful blue sky!!
