When baby Day was born, his uncle Gerard called him baby bird, because his other uncle's nickname is Bird. Don't ask.
Well! Today we found a perfect palm-sized bird's nest in the garden, woven from branches and tissue and wooly stuff, with not one but two purple and white speckled eggs in it the size of Mini-Eggs chocolates.
Baby Day's Gong Gong was watering the plants and when he came to the tree, a bird suddenly flew out. We climbed up and found its nest.
It's lovely having something as earthy as a bird's nest in our garden and it's even more wonderful knowing that it holds life. We can't wait for those babies to hatch.
