QSS found and gave me a rather beaten up nest last month, which, with a little tlc and a large tube of UHU has become the latest addition to the Sprocket Towers Art Gallery.

it looks great - but come spring I hope some poor birdie isn't going to limp home over thousands of miles only to find that he hasn't got one....

I agree, it does indeed look good, but I think I might just move it up a bit, it is a little close to that light switch .....

D – well, since I had a family of bluetits living in my bathroom last year, it's only fair that I have suitable accommodation ready for any visitors this year

MD – this is only a temporary position for it, I'm not sure where it's going to hang permanently

MaggieD says:

Well I would definitely put it against a white wall (so no problem there) .... and the more I look at it, the more I like it .... though that second pic does look like it has a snout like face poking out if you stare at it for long enough ......

OCD Sprocket says:

luckily all I have are white walls :-))

and just how long were you staring at it in order to see the snout face?

MaggieD says:

Not long, but there again, I was given one of those magic eye books for christmas, so now I see all sorts of weird and wonderful things just by staring intently at a focus point on any given pic ;)

well, if you look long enough at pic one, you should be able to see a penguin doing his ironing

EL - how are you uploading?

If you are uploading via email, then merely add as many photo attachments as you need to to your email, or if uploading via the proprietary "POST" button on the top of your blog, again just add as many images as you want.

It looks great! I usually find at least one nest a year. If I find one this year, should I box it up and send it to you?

19th Jan 2009, 05:21

C - ooh yes please :-))

19th Jan 2009, 05:54

Caine says:

Okay, I'll be on the lookout! :) Mind, it will be ages yet until winter is over. *sigh*

I like it very much. Not sure about that white wall though. Ever thought about introducing a bit of colour?

27th Jan 2009, 09:29
