27 March – The rennovators

Of course, the blue tits prefer to begin nesting in our garage eaves
rather than taking up residence in the box purchased specially from the RSPB.
But why must they insist on pulling out endless tufts of roof insulation
and scattering it all over the terrace, much to our constant consternation?
They’ve obviously decided their field-foraged lining is far superior to ours
but blatant house decimation for bird-nest creation is taking it a little too far…
Maybe next year, we should fill the nesting box with stacks of rich yellow foam,
then perhaps they’ll throw out all of that and leave our poor garage roof alone!
