Again, my deepest apologies. In recent times work got me again relentlessly so I have had less time for the internet than previously, but I just have to post this!!
The poor little fellow has recently learned to come to the judas tree with Mum and Dad and his siblings. I think they nest in our neighbours' garden. But he hadn't listened much to his flying instructions and must have crashed into the garden lamp post. Where Chris spotted him this morning, cursing the cats. But he was not dead at all, I picked him up and put him safe in the conservatory, in the sunflower seed bowl that I use for topping up. Naaawwh he had to fly again.
So Chris put him into the Judas tree, on a biggish branch out of certain predator's reach. An hour later he was hanging to the tree again, Chris tells me and now he is off with his family.
Hope he is ok.
