Lucky escape for Treecreeper!

I thought you might like to see this. Whilst enjoying a leisurely coffee this morning there was a (mercifully dull) thud on the lounge window. On investigating I found a stunned Treecreeper on the patio. As it was so cold this morning I picked it up in a tea towel to keep it warm whilst it hopefully recovered. About 10 minutes later it started giving its characteristic squeak and so I carefully put it on a pile of tree stumps at the bottom of the garden near the mature trees and stood guard in case Maia (our cat) should appear. About a minute later it flew away seemingly none the worse for the experience.

A very nice addition to my garden list.
