Sooty
sturnus vulgaris zetlandicus, a bit soot-stained

Another one. This one, as so often, in the stove. Not sure how long it was there, probably less than a day. A bit more cantankerous than the last, and a bit sooty. (These two things may be related.) You’d think birds would have the sense not to fly down a dark reeky hole, but then it’s been so warm this year that even in mid-December we haven’t had the fire on. I suppose we should light it if only to make it smell a bit more daunting.
