Rachel looked it up for me – she has these occasional moments of kindness – and we now know that baby blackbirds aren’t fledged for 10-19 days. That’s ages!
Me, I will be driven mad before then if I don’t get OUT for a few minutes.
Rachel says it’s nice to see me eating well and putting on a bit of weight; she doesn’t like the stripey stretched-elastic-band look. I tell her it’s boredom that makes me do it; I’ll be too fat to walk if those birds don’t hurry up and leave home. And then how will I catch them say hello to them?
