the little birds in the nest near the front gate were doing well. i went out yesterday and the nest was empty. leaving the nest and learning to fly. the nature of things. but ... as i walked to the car i saw the saddest little sight. two little bodies. devoid of life. i wonder what happened to them. it may have been cats, or bigger birds, or perhaps they weren't ready to leave the nest. i don't know. i don't think isis, my neighbour's cat, would have hurt them coz she is old and spends her time sitting in the sun in the car park. oh dear.
