Peacocks and chiffchaffs,

An exhausted chiffchaff was rescued by my wife in a peacocks shop today. As members of staff ignored the poor little bird flying against the window she calmly picked it up and put it in a small cardboard box not wanting to release it in a huge car park. She arrived home saying she had a surprise for me. I wasn't expecting a warbler. I put it in a small cage for a couple of minutes to check it was ok and then released it into the garden were it started feeding straight away .It really was almost wieghtless when I had it in my hand for a couple of seconds but a pleasure to see one so close.
