As I already told you, we have birds everywhere!
We have four nests, sparrows nests on top of three windows and one on top of our balcony and they are sharing the space with a bat!
They stay here the whole year, sleeping in their nests during the winter or under the roof . Too crowded, not enough room!
To do their nests, they go and fetch the wool from the sheep’s next door, so it is warm in the winter and cool in Summer, clever isn’t it?
During the day, they eat, drink, take a bath and chat in the bush behind the little magnolia. They chat all the time and very loud!
We have about 30 sparrows and with the four nests I wonder how many we’ll have this Spring!
The first picture, is a picture of one end of the roof.
One end is like this in Normand houses. You can see it on picture 6 our neighbour ´s house.
And this is where the bat lives and one of the nest and generally you have a balcony there.
I always try to use the balcony and clean it, but I am desperate
It is always dirty!
Bats are protected, but they scare me.
Last Summer as I was closing the window, a bat came in our living room, went up the stairs and settled in my son’s room upside down. My husband manage to get it outside!
These are the joys of country side!
Have a good day!
