Sub Sub ‘Space Face’

Before they were Doves they were Sub Sub, and released this superb piece of dance music- Space Face.

In other bird related news, the kids found an injured young bird outside our house yesterday, several cats were prowling around, and an older bird was squawking from the rooftop. The kids wanted to try to save it. A neighbour said the RSPCA etc wouldn’t be interested and that saving it from being mauled by cats might be the best we could do. Mrs Swiss asked me ‘How do you pick up a bird?’. ‘Buy it a couple of drinks and try to make it laugh?’ I suggested.

We got it in a cardboard box and put it in our shed, with some water and bread. Then we noticed the mother bird with worms and grubs in it’s beak, trying to get in the shed. All very upsetting. We opened the shed door, to let the mother bird feed it’s baby with it’s broken wing. ET, 7 years old, was by now very concerned. I checked on it later last night and things didn’t look good- Giggsy (as it was now known) couldn’t feed itself and mother had vanished. We got up this morning and went to the shed, and alas Giggsy had died. We’ve also found Giggsy’s brother or sister, dead, in the alleyway behind the house. I guess leaving the nest is a bit do or die. Everyone’s bearing up pretty well though.
