    I was sitting quietly reading when there was a thump on the patio window
    A little blue tit was on the ground in a heap. He was still alive so I put him in a box in the dark to let him recover

    Half an hour later I heard a scrabbling in the box so I let him go free
    He shot off like a streak of light

    Hope he has not too much of a headache and can look after his family

    That's good he was well enough to fly off.

    We had the same happen with a sparrow last year. But the bugger fell into a patch of nettles, so to make sure he was OK I had to stick my arm in it. Luckily he was and he just needed a rest before he flew off.

    Edit to add: I think it's the time of year where they are feeding Their young non stop and get a bit frazzled :p

    We need to look after the birds, they are diminishing at an alarming rate.
    We used to have loads of starlings now we are lucky if we see a few
    PLeased your sparrow was ok

    I hate it when that happens, we've got dark bird stickers on our patio door glass to try and stop it happening which did help a bit but we still get it a couple of times a year. Usually they recover after a little rest in a box out of harms way from predators but we had to take one little Goldcrest to the local bird & wildlife hospital.
