Look what we found on the way home from school…
We decided that he looked like a ‘Bert’.
I explained to the girls that yes it was very lucky to have a bird poo on your hand, they weren’t convinced but humoured me.
‘Bert’ flew onto Siobhan’s jacket much to her complete delight!
Oh my goodness what a fabulous find on the way home from school we spotted a fledgling bird (sparrow we think) by a tree and although I know it is important not to disturb them at all we had to go and have a look.
Thanks goodness for iPhone’s! as I was taking some pictures the sheer joy on my daughter’s faces said it all. What a great way to see nature up close, we had just been reading about Spring and all it’s wonders at home with Lara, so this was a little blessing to see a young bird so closely.
We placed ‘Bert’ in the same spot where we found him and said goodbye, the next morning as we walked passed the spot we found him in the girls were calling out for ‘Bert’, and it must have seemed as if we had lost our dog as we got a few strange looks from early morning walkers.
