Norman the house martin was found 12 days ago after a storm washed his nest off the house. Really small, and not much chance of lasting the night.
Yesterday, after countless crickets, cat food and live worms (various), he hopped onto the edge of his box and zoomed out of the door to join his family flock.
Without so much as a backward glance, the ungrateful little sh*t.
But at least I get more time in bed now that the 06:00 feed is no longer required!
