A birdhouse for your soul

I have a nice little beachhut birdhouse (nearly a shed) hanging from my shed, to try and attract our featherd friends to the garden (not much, luck thanks to next doors cats)

but I was reading my emails, and this popped into the wossname.

Caravan Birdhouse

This brilliant rustic birdhouse is a great gift for all you nature lovers, Bill Oddie types and full-on fans of ornithology, as it puts a humorous twist on a traditional garden accessory. But that wouldn’t be hard because most birdhouses are hideously twee eyesores that instantly give your garden that old biddy look. And you wouldn’t want that, would you?

No, what you want is this seriously ironic birdhouse shaped just like an old clapped out caravan. You know, the kind of thing you might see Bernard Bresslaw and Windsor Davies hanging out in circa ’75.

If you fancy one you can buy it or the washing machine version from firebox.
