Saturday, February 19


This is the front of my house:

Looks harmless enough, doesn't it?

Unfortunately, it seems to be invisible to birds and we regularly hear a great thud, and see a bird flap away, dazed and confused.

Until yesterday that is.

I heard the thud, and from the corner of my eye I saw the bird drop like a stone to the driveway. I peeked out the window (I am a bit squeamish with these things), and the bird was lying on the driveway. Dead.

So, luckily for me, Frances was out in the backyard hanging out washing, so I got her to check if it was dead (yes) and dispose of the poor little thing. Which she did. Cos she is a nurse and sees gory things all the time.

I'm really glad it didn't land on my car!
