For the first time in my life, I have been presented with a bird’s egg upon opening the back door.
There were also the remains of something inside the shell, which I take to be a natural part of birthing, as opposed to predation. I do hope so, at any rate!
Which leaves me with the question of bird species. I have definitely seen robins round about but dunnocks… Before today, I had never heard of these little sparrow-like birds, so perhaps the shell is from a neighbouring dunnock rather than a robin.
All the same, I am glad to have learned something new this morning. ‘My’ birds are so fascinating – just today also, I saw birds passing food to each other mid-air. Pity I couldn’t get a photo of that, too.
