A Blackbird has built a nest in our woodshed. The nest is perched on top of a wooden frame that is leaning against the wall, and is at eye-level. It’s just below the equipment that supplies the current to the electric fence (to keep the dogs in the garden and the cows out), so when I switch the fence on or off, the blackbird and I stare eyeball to eyeball. It doesn’t seem to bother her at all.



About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
