Its all gone quite....

I live in a flat above a shop,last year a pair of starlings came and made a nest in the roof space,this year they returned,what a noise they make the fledglings when the parent birds arrive with some food for them,you would think that late at night they would be sleeping,but no they are hoping about the loft,getting themselves stronger,getting ready to fly and go on there adventures.They have flown the nest now its all gone quiet.One roofing firm i worked for sent me on a job with orders to get it finished and go and help someone else on another job,when i arrived at the other job i could hardly believe it,this guy was replacing the rotten wooden fascias and cast iron guttering with plastic fascias and guttering,he had pulled out all the sparrows nests and chucked them on the floor some with eggs in or young ones,the parent sparrows were chirping around the place not knowing what to do,the red mist came down.He was at the top the ladder,i pushed it over,he fell on the floor then i bloodied his face for him,i lost my job,ended up in court and was fined,would i do it again now i am meant to be older and wiser,yeah i would,and i hope my starlings return next year.

Good for you on hurting that prat.

Im under the impression to disturb a nest with eggs or chicks is an offence. What happened to him?

As they where only common sparrows,nobody was interested in taking any action against him.

Also he was working alone,no body seen him do anything,it was obvious he did do it,but in a court of law its difficult to prove.

So nobody 'saw' him do anything then.

Nobody ever does see anything do they.

I got a taxi to a pub car park one Sunday afternoon,as i walked to the entrance of the pub,some guy threw a women out the doors of the pub and kicked her when she was on the ground more than once,then ran off,the police arrived and i gave my name as i had witnessed this event.
Before standing in the Crown court to give my side of what i had seen,this guy is in titled to know my name and where i live,thats one reason nobody sees anything.
