Rescue of a Baby Robin

Hi Bozo, hope you don't mind me posting this here. A baby robin (Cape Robin-chat) flew into my bedroom last week and between my dil and I we managed to catch it without harming it.
I held it carefully but securely while photographing it and then called the children to come and see it. (They both love animals; my six-year-old granddaughter is actually crazy about all creatures)

They stroked it and had a good look and then we all went into the garden. I gave the bird to gd who, with tears streaming down her face, let it go. It flew high straight up into a thorn tree, where we could hear its parent calling it.
