I should be glazing


but I have been evicted from my own workspace by a crew of repellent little invaders.

While dabbling about with sieves and brushes I noticed a robin sitting in the gap at the top of the garage door with a beakfull of something; a few minutes later I saw it again, with what looked like the same something.  The penny dropped, I started hunting round and found the nest on a neglected shelf in the top corner of the garage above the basin and tap.

One should let the parent(s) try to rear these revolting little objects, I suppose, and I’d already been in the garage for an hour, so I’ve come out to let them get a feed.

It’s going to be a right nuisance if she rears them and they start taking practice flights round my shelves of ware, doing what all small creatures do best.

Only their mother could love them

  1. I think I could count four beaks, but there might be a runt being sat upon by the stronger members of the family. They must be very newly hatched – apparently they develop their feathers from about 3 days. I can see why the adults nested there though – I never open the front door of the garage at all, and with the weather the way it is outside, it must look a good bet!
