Thank god I'm working from home !



My boyfriend took home this little guy a couple of weeks ago who he found dumped alongside a road. 

After some research & speaking to some bird-raising veterans we have been raising him from strength to strength. Little bird can't fly yet, but has recently learned how to peck his own food (milestone for a first time mum like me!)

I'm dreading the day we have to say goodbye....

I hope these pics brighten up anyone's midweek slump!
