Bird Feeder

Alex was feeding the birds on the bird table this morning when a chaffinch flew in to the window.
Now I don't know if the chaffinch initially realised how much danger he was in.

 The window must have stunned him but when Mrs Doctor Doolittle got involved he was at his greatest danger. Alex is a real softy and will try anything. In this instance for some unknown reason she picked up a dried mealy worm and started stroking the chest of the chaffinch. Yes I know what is that all about?

She has never been the same since she read the James Herriot series All Creatures Great and Small.
The chaffinch must have heard about Alex feeding a young sparrow from a matchstick. The sparrow swallowed the matchstick and died, because the chaffinch made a miraculous recovery and flew off.
