There was a strange noise coming from the lounge this morning. When I investigated, I realised that we had a bird stuck in the chimney. The noise was the bird flapping its wings desperate to get out.
After a few minutes the blackbird left the chimney and flew into the lounge. It proceeded to do a tour of the room looking for an escape route. I quickly opened all the windows and the front door to let the bird out. After three or four attempts it managed to escape. Hopefully the bird will have learnt not to get into chimney pots. Better still it will warn other birds not to do the same.
