As I sat at my computer this morning checking that Mr Blogger was behaving himself and my Stampalot post had gone live, I heard a noise. I presumed it was a bird landing on our bird feeder that is attached to the window by suction cups. A few minutes later I heard it again, and looked up only to find the bird feeder empty... I looked in the kitchen...nothing... nothing in the garage either...returned to the lounge and hear the scratching noises...from behind the gas fire! Some further listening confirmed it was a bird. Steve listened too and then rang the gas board, who couldn't come out till Thursday... SQUAWK! went the disgruntled bird. I knew then that it was a starling. He shouted again for help, but the woman on the end of the phone obviously didn't speak starlingese. I sat there thinking about the poor creature and decided he wasn't going to die if I could help it.
Needless to say I didn't do half of what I'd planned today! I have a couple of cards that I will photograph and post tomorrow, though.
Just to let you know if you are interested, Meg has started a new blog. She intends to post her drawings, her photos and food. You can find it here
Thanks for listening to my rambling. I hope you had a lovely day despite the rain.
