Surprise House Guest!

Meet our unexpected (but very welcome) house guest!

We spotted our guest flying in & out of the eaves around the back of our house. To our surprise we then noticed another bird flying in & out of a similar spot at the front of our house!

My little ornithologist is in her element! She's been avidly watching the bird's movements in & out of the eaves, the bird's flight path around the garden, & has keenly made more mud for them! (I think there may be an ulterior motive with the latter!!)

The only problem is the birds are nesting near her bedroom, so Minnie is now an early bird, being woken up by the Blue Tits! Do you think I could ask them to keep the noise down? ;-)

Have you had any unexpected birds/animals stopping by your house recently? 


  1. how lovely! We've had green parakeets in our garden, in London!!

  2. In my mother's house swallows nest in the roof. We say here in Portugal that they bless the house:)


  3. We have robins that seem to insist on making their nests on the ladder of my girls playhouse. Not a great place to nest! It has given us lots of bird nests to examine and explore but we do feel bad for the birds because they just can't nest there so we keep having to take down their nests.
