I woke up the other morning and decided to pay a trip to the bird table that my human friend GB keeps
stocked stacked with
peanuts and seeds. He really looks after
us small birds and spends much of his time devising new ways of keeping those
bossy Pigeons from stealing all our feed before we can get a look in. His latest invention will no doubt appear on
his blog in the near future. Any way, I’m
getting side=tracked. My mind does that
sometimes. Which could explain why I
flew into the invisible force fiekd that separates his kitchen from the garden.
And there I was, gazing at the Great Skua in the Sky. Fortunately, despite first appearances, it was a real Great Skua, not the one that carries a scythe.
The human staying with GB picked me up and warmed up my shocked little body.
Gradually I was able to stand on my own two feet.
Then I did a little pirouette to show him my pretty tail.
He put me down on a little wall but I was still a bit shocked so he moved me again into the bushes whence I disappeared quite quickly – a much happier ending than the human or I had initially anticipated.
