The other surprise of the weekend was the discovery of a well hidden birds nest. The nest was so well hidden it nearly caused the death of the baby birds in it. Mr.S&P was going about his garden tasks, which at the moment involves the laying of a red brick path alongside the back of the house. When on lifting a bag of gravel at the back of the garden in the 'gubbins' (very untidy) area of the garden, he was startled by a bird flying out of said bag. Even more startled when on tipping the bag of gravel into a wheelbarrow he spotted a tiny nest with the most incy baby birds in it, which thankfully had not been crushed by the tipping out of the gravel, and were even still the right way up.
