Bullfinch Nest

Retrieved from Teflon Boy before it got bashed into a compost bag, when he trimmed the palm tree in the front yard recently. It's been home for a bullfinch family, who fledged 3 babies this year. So lovely to hear them all chirping away at crack of dawn, and see them learning to fly, all whilst lying in bed!
For those who don't know, we own the bottom half of a big detached brick house (which luckily for us includes the whole garden too) and our bedroom is the old main front room from before the house was divided up. One day I will get around to drawing a suitable illustration, but for now, suffice it to say that the bedrooms are at the front of the house, and the living/dining/kitchen space is at the back, where the garden is - unusual, but you do get used to it!
