I?m like a bird, I?ll only fly away

We have sparrows that nest on our roof, and you can sometimes hear them chirping when you?re upstairs, but today I could hear one very loudly from downstairs?. how odd. I went upstairs to investigate and the sound was coming from the bathroom?hmmmm. I went in and somehow a bird had got in and was in a bit of a state trying to find a way out, and just flying into the windows and net curtains, and then, to my despair it flew into the toilet, and into the water!!!
I put my hand into the water [it had been flushed previously!], scooped out the little bird, and slowly walked downstairs, smuggling her past the cat, and then into the garden. It had started to dry off a bit now and so I went down to the shed, and put her next to it so that she had shelter and some time to recuperate from the ordeal.

I?m glad that I heard it, as I don?t normally go to the upstairs toilet, and I wouldn?t have liked to have found it dead. So I am a hero today, and a little sparrow lives to save the day. [Incidently sparrow numbers are on the decline, hopefully not due to too many toilet related incidents.]

    Good work mate!

    Good effort.

    Sparrows are OK. if it had been a pigeon, it would have been your duty to flush the loo and send it where it belongs! Pigeons are scum.

    Well done! Poor little thing must have been terrified?

    I would like to add that this wasn?t the same toilet I fixed the other day, so cannot be held responsible for any injuries related to it.
