Our daughter was woken by loud chirping noises coming from her chimney -
it's not uncommon for Jackdaws to build their nests on top of chimneys with sticks and twigs,
which often fall down them - bird included.
The chimney had been sealed off with a board when we renovated the room, mainly because of the mess that the birds had caused in the past.
We couldn't leave this one stuck up the chimney to die,
so the board was removed, dust sheets draped...
bird pulled out and rescued....
(funny how my daughter has a bird on her t-shirt this morning!!!)
It flew off out of the window.
A few minutes later it was back on top of the chimney -
hopefully not to repeat its adventure again!!
