2017 Weekly photo challenge (week 50) Gentle

Last year we got an unexpected visitor in our lounge. This little blue tit became trapped indoors after flying in through the open front door. After a few moments of frantic flapping about we managed to steer him out of the apartment.

While he recovered from his ordeal, he sat for a while on our balcony and was happy for us to come very close – so close in fact, that he allowed one Little Postcard to gently stroke him. He then happily flew off.

2017 Weekly photo challenge (week 22) Lost

This little chap got lost last year. I got the fright of my life as I walked past the lounge door and spied him flying about indoors – he must’ve taken a wrong turning and  flown in through the open front door. When I tried to rescue him he got himself trapped between the sashes of our old wooden windows.

Thankfully I have a young botanist in the house and he rose to the challenge of rescuing the Blue Tit. We brought him outside and popped him on the balcony. I fully expected him to fly off straight away but he stayed for a while to compose himself before scooting off to find his friends.
