I was sat doing nothing much the other day, there was no TV babbling in the corner, no children squabbling, no noise much at all, and then I heard it. The first noticeable dusk birdsong! Sweet music to my ears. A sign that the long winter months are on their way out, giving way to spring at last. I don't know if this is why the piece of copper I was weaving into a spiders web, suddenly became a birds nest, but it did. Once it was made and patinated there was just one thing missing. A little birdy to sing in the spring!
So I turned on the torch and made this little fella to sit and sing - I think he's waving good bye to winter!
