We've got Lodgers!

Hello Woofers!

We are here again, Daisy, Holly & Snowflake!

What a rotten day, it has been raining on and off for most of today and why does it always start to rain the moment we put out noses out of the door!

Still, we had our coats on so it wasn't so bad, just a little damp!

This morning we had a walk around The Farm 'cos OTL was busy and had to go out early. That also means that The Missus didn't take her camera out with her, so that means no photos!

We reckon that she doesn't take the camera out 'cos Old Two Legs set it up for taking pictures of her cards and now she is too scared to play with any of the controls!

OTL being out means that life in the house hold is a bit, 'Boring', so, to help pass the time and also making a change from snoozing, which is not so bad but sometimes you can have too much of a good thing, know what I mean?

Well, there I was, sitting in OTL's office, flicking through the TV channels when I came across the section that shows all the other stuff he has connected to the TV, like, Computer and AV1 and AV2 and HMDI2.

One of these showed the inside of the bird box we have got, just outside the window.

I was just about to change channel again when this Sparrow appeared on the screen with some bits of grass in is beak and he proceeded to build a nest!

I was facinated and so was Snowflake, who was watching from Snowy Heights! Hey Up! Says Snowflake, does Sparrow taste like chicken? ('cos she likes raw chicken legs) 'No idea' says I thinking the same thing!

So, out comes OTL's camera and we try to capture a shot!

New Lodger!
When we told OTL about it he said that the last sparrows who nested there we a messy pair and kept covering up the lens with bits of grass 'cos the didn't like OTL and TM watching them hatch out the eggs!

The male sparrow seems to be in the nest all the time, pushing and poking the grass and trying to make it all soft and warm.

So we will be keeping a close eye on what happens and already Snowflake is researching on the internet to find out if you can make a decent omelet out of sparrows eggs, but I don't think OTL will allow that!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly & Snowflake
