cheesynibbler will become famous soon enough

I contacted the rspca and they said to bring any chicks home that fell out the nest and keep them in a box with shredded paper and they would collect them tomorrow....

However...when my partner went out the check the mother bird was in the nest!!!

So he's left the little bit of paper that he wedged in the bottom of the hole to stop them falling out and all seems well

The rspca said that as the mother bird (likely a small songbird but obviously can't tell which) has chosen a tiny place to nest the chicks may fledge early meaning they will be hopping on the ground for a few days and that's fine as long as the mother is coming to feed them

Will be letting the office know so hopefully use of the service door will be kept to a minimum

Thanks for your help
