Then I heard a bump! It was still dark, but I got up and checked the house. Everything seemed fine.
It got light, and I assumed the 'bump' I had heard was this bird table going over.
It was only when I ventured outside that I realised that the 'bump' I had heard was one of the old beech trees near Skip coming down, completely blocking the road. Fortunately no-one had been driving past at the time.
