Almost from the start, the starlings have been investigating the chimney. Although there was some chicken wire around it, they were able to find a way in, and on the first day I had my first visitor. It was not able to be tempted out, even with all the curtains but one closed and the window open all day. By this morning there were three starlings, and it was amazing that Shane the chimney sweep was able to get the two live ones out without any damage to them other than panic. However I may have no need to light the fire tonight. On the farm next door they have lit the huge piles of trees that had been cut down some time ago, and I can feel the warmth from here in the lounge!
