It started yesterday morning when I noticed a bird sat in the bush by my back door , I stood looking at it , looking at me when I realised it had no
tail feathers , it was a chick.
Over the last few days we've had unseasonably strong winds so my assumption is the young guy has fallen from his nest in the trees not far from my
house , he must have made his way into my garden for shelter , I keep the edges and end of the garden wild at this time of year for birds and
At first I was quite concerned as the little bloke isn't old enough to find food for himself so I started mulling over what to do , until I noticed a
brown bird on my fence with a beak full of food which proceeded to drop down and feed the chick .... his parents know where he is , relief.
So , he has his parents feeding him and me sat at my computer by the window riding shotgun looking out for incursions by local felines , I'm not a
cat person so have made it clear to them in the past they're not welcome , hopefully they will continue to give my garden a wide berth.
It's like having a real time wildlife docudrama unfolding in my garden , I hope the good weather continues and the little bloke survives to grow his
tail feathers and escape to freedom ... only time will tell.
