Thread: Norman's gone

  1. #1

    Norman (the house martin) has gone

    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!

    Oh, oh, oh...OLD-YOP...please adjust your header! Maybe to "Our House Martin Dead?

    There's a lot thought that this referred to Uncle Norm and that we'd lost a really very, very nice fellow forum member.

    It gave me quite a shock!

    REALLY sorry for any embarrassment, Norman ... I can't work out how to retrospectively change the title of this thread!

    Did this very exercise with a young swift as a young lad, very satisfying, the best part was that for at least 3 years after we had one swift in the flock of swallows and house martins (we never had swifts around the house, it was found in a near by village), so i can only assume it was the same one....
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink
