All day yesterday we saw a little bird hopping around the flowers beds by the kitchen patio. It didn't fly off when I went out to look at it but it was too quick for me to take a photo. Then last night Paul heard something by the window as he was on the computer, he came out of his room and when he returned the little bird was perched on his monitor! Here it is on Paul's bed!
Obviously it can fly a little if it managed to get into Paul's room but we think it might have flown the nest and got lost or been abandoned. We weren't quite sure what to do with it but it didn't look too stressed when Mark picked it up so we put it outside again. I was afraid it might die of stress if we kept it in but it might be eaten by the cats if we put it out. I left some seed out for it during the day which it wasn't interested in so we think it may be a flycatcher of some sort. At first we thought it might be a robin, but it's not. It has some reddish brown feathers in its tail. Does anyone recognise it? We put it outside as it was still raining and the cats wouldn't be around. We closed the window and it hopped over to look at us through the glass and flew off. I can't see it this morning, I hope it's still alive!
