Pull up in the car in the drizzle, to see Mike King there. The bird had disappeared into the gardens, just before i arrived. About 2 minutes later, there it was, about 2 feet from Mikes head, on the fence. Then it flew down onto the front lawn of the house, and stood on the doorstep!
It then flew back to the flats, and found some paving slabs to sleep under. It stayed there until almost dark, when i left. Hope its still there tomorrow, it won't have to go far for food, as there are loads of mealworms around the roost site now! Fingers crossed…...
