BIRDS’ NESTS IN TRAINS
THE passengers by two workmen’s trains from New Barnet to the City are just now greatly interested in some of their travelling companions – two families of sparrows.
The birds have built a nest underneath a carriage of each train, and do not seem in the least disturbed by the journeys to and from town.
One of the trains occasionally goes on the long run toSkegness and back – and with it go the sparrows.
