Here is a photo of a door.
Now before you roll your eyes, think “this is going to be a boring post” and click back to Facebook, have a closer look. Can you spot the inherent danger?
Let me highlight it for you:
There, on the light above our back door, is a nest of very ugly willie wagtail babies.
So what is dangerous about willie wagtail babies?
Willie wagtail mammas….
Every time we want to enter or exit the house we are under attack. Mamma and papa wagtail sit on top of the door ready to swoop.
They hit our hats, knock off sunglasses and according to one so-called friend, who shall remain nameless, mistake my messy hair for their nest. We have been enduring this torment for weeks but as the parents have attacked, the babies have grown and they are no longer ugly.
In fact today they took wing
I’m not sure if I will miss them or not.
