The other morning whilst drinking our early morning tea together, Chris thought he caught a glimpse of a squirrel in the trees across the road (he didn't have his glasses on)! A squirrel would be a rare sighting where I live (only one in the 20 odd years we've been here). Anyway, I got my bins (never toooooo far away from my birding hands) and what I saw wasn't a squirrel but this male House Sparrow with a wacking great big piece of string. He flew across the road to our front garden with this string trailing behind him, so I grabbed my camera (never toooooo far away from my bins) (-: and took a load of snaps of him trying to get to grips with his home diy project! He was obviously nesting in the eaves of our house as he tried several times to get the string up there without success.
