An unexpected visitor in the playroom.
Yesterday morning I came downstairs to start my day as usual, only to find a pigeon flying around the playroom and kitchen!!!! My girlish screams soon woke everyone in the household (and half the county). All the windows had been closed over night and the playroom door has been shut so the only logical explanation is that it fell down the chimney.
It can't have been there long as I found hardly any droppings afterwards, and I know there is a nest on the roof somewhere as you can hear chicks cheeping from our bedroom window.
A quick piece of nifty towel throwing and the beast was captured. After letting the girls have a quick peek at our guest and a few snaps were taken, we released it in the garden. Only to watch it fly in a big arc and go straight back to our roof. Let's hope the poor little thing has learned a lesson about balancing on the chimney.
I'm pleased to say this morning the playroom was bird free :)
