From tweeting in Sutton to doorstep diaries

Tickling the funny bone

A Quaker once kept a rare bird
Who uttered a very rude word
But l’m happy to say
We all looked away
And muttered: ‘Our Friend is not heard!’

I have put a notice on it warning people not to use the box… There are obviously young birds in the nest as the parents are rushing in and out with tasty morsels and there is lots of cheeping!’
