Are we There Yet ?

By Trevhas
Bizarre things happen when you're out and about in extreme conditions.

I arrived back at the -5 ( V2 ) Surprise view car park, still blowing a blizzard trying to work out how i was going to get home in my front wheeled drive car ( V1 ) when this little bird tapped on my drivers side window ( V3 ) , i lowered the glass, like you do and this little fella flew in to get out of the cold ( V4 ).
It spent a good few minutes foraging around the footwells until it came across one of Mrs T's Whitby chips, unfortunately i hadn't got anything else to offer but it seemed happy enough with the chip. Wink
Ten minutes later white circles started to appear on the rear suede seats and i knew it was time for Mr Robin to man up and leave, ............. or should i take him home ? ............. take him home to meet Rambo the resident robin who likes to fight, they are very territorial so maybe not, so i opened the door, still blowing a blizzard, his knees trembling, i thought he'd be off in a flash.
I ended up opening all doors and started to imitate a cat but little old robin was reluctant to leave until the car started filling up with drifting snow, he hopped out eventually and sheltered under the car, ...... DAM ! ......... it must have been warm under there as the engine had been running for half an hour or so and i was the only car in the car park. .................... i didn't feel a bump or anything as i slowly skidded off home. Wink

Many thanks Mike for your welcome UA on my last pic, always appreciated.

A wonderful picture and story, Trev. Robins are known to hop around gardeners' feet when they are digging, but he must have been desperate to do this. Just shows how the wildlife suffer in those conditions. Hope he survived. Allan

What a wonderful story! Had to give you an Award for that! The moral of this tale is that you should always carry some suet pellets and a lid to pour water in for just such an occasion! Wonderful! GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
