Building A Nest

We got this book from the library and Ted has just loved it…

…the direct translation is ‘Look – Birds’…

One of the most popular pictures is of the magpie flying with a stick to build his nest…

Perhaps it’s because we’ve been observing the magpies nests getting built…

..or perhaps it’s because we’ve been observing the magpies in our garden…

…or perhaps it was this book which enthused us…?

Whatever it was, we enjoyed collecting things that we thought might be used for a nest…

…in bottles of water, on a very rainy day…

Alfie thought this was a great activity, and found a LOT of things for his ‘nest’.

Ted was a little more careful about what he put in his ‘nest’, and became somewhat fixated upon a floating seed which he was certain was actually a snail, in his bottle.
