Well I know Spring has definitely arrived when the following sentence appears in the ‘search engine terms’ of my dashboard:
Jackdaws have nested in my fascia boards.
You remember my posts last year, the Feathered Frenzy series? All types of despairing, disparate people were stumbling onto my blog in a desperate attempt to garner information on how to repel these dark invaders. My favourite one was:
Jackdaws are eating my car.
There was a definite sense of last straw desperation about the people who were caught up in the maze of City Jackdaw, tearing their hair out, exclaiming “What am I supposed to do, pepper them with poetry? Harass them with humour? Repel them with a reblog?”
We are back in the cycle of the Jackdaw, I will now keep an eye on my search engine terms with interest. If you are one of those desperate, besieged victims, dear reader, stick around, throw us a follow. Together we’ll figure it out.
But first, how about an old photograph?
