Saving lives

The strong winds we’ve been having lately have made life for the nesting birds extremely difficult. A couple of days ago we noticed a sparrow’s nest had been blown into one of our birdbaths! We became really concerned when the mother sparrow sat on the edge of the birdbath looking really worried. Dougal braved the storm and rescued the nest which contained a number of live, if a little frightened, small sparrows. He carefully restored it to the nearest tree, not sure if it was exactly back in its original place and we have watched Mum and Dad continue to nurture and feed their young family. We felt good too!
