i am not obsessed with rain right now-honest!
its a better day here in the forest today, although we have sunshine and clouds rushing by the rain has held off which is pleasing me because we have a tiny visitor making camp in the over grown grass of our back lawn.
earlier this morning our neighbour calv (of the great blog mishaps in the making) caught swampy on his way out that a baby bird had made its way into our garden.
i, of course, set up watch at the window, worried a jackdaw might find it and attack it~i have seen magpies do this so thought i would keep an eye on it just in case.
i was glad to see the mum coming to feed it, allowing me to identify the baby~its a blackbird!
she is also not feeding him a lot which makes me think it is not a particularly young baby and it is also preening itself too.
i just hope it does not rain too hard on him if it does.
i am going through an extended period of 'insomnia nights' right now.
i think last night was about the fourth or fifth night.
i get to sleep for about 2-3 hours, wake up and then that it until the birds start singing, when i fall asleep again for a few hours. i think tonight i will have two bags of 'sleep easy' tea in a mug.
over at gaia's garden shop they have lots of oils and incense for relaxation (as well as a lovely forum) so i think its time to spend a little money.
