Lucy and the Tree

This is the tree where Mr. & Mrs Blackbird have their nest. It is not in our garden so I can't show you the bottom of it. Mum thinks it is a type of conifer and as you can see it is very big and thick.

Mum says I will need climbing gear and ropes to get to the nest when I am baby bird sitting while Mr. & Mrs. Blackbird go out for a break. I think I may need a few tree climbing lessons before I set off - has any cat got any tips for me?

It is very windy here today and the tree is really shaking and swaying do you think I ought to have a harness on so if I get blown out of it I won't fall down to the ground and also should I hold on to the babies so they don't get shaken out of the nest?

  1. You are very brave to tackle such a big tree! We think a harness would be a great idea!

    :-)

  3. That's a pretty big tree, Lucy!

    I'm not convinced Mr. and Mrs. Blackbird are going to go for your baby bird sitting, though. ;-)

  5. Lucy, maybe you should take a long nap and think about it; that's a pretty big tree to climb and the Blackbird family might not want your birdsitting services!!...Happy Monday...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  6. What a big tree. How kind of you to be thinking of the little birdies in the tree. We hope you are not planning to eat them?

  10. A safety harness would probably be a good idea while you are practising your tree climbing. Conifers are very thick but they have lots of branches to climb on.

  11. Oh Lucy! That's a very big tree! Maybe you should stick with birdies closer to the ground...

  13. Lucy, that's a Leylandii confifer, they grow to about 9000 feet tall, so you might need an oxygen mask when you climb it. Stick to the lower branches for now. Hope the baby blackbirds are tasty, oops, erm, I mean "ok"
