If you have a real fire, stove or woodburner you may have heard the fluttering and flapping occasionally. When birds land on the chimney, the sound can travel down the chimney void and into the room.
But what if you hear this sound a lot? I t could mean that a bird has got itself stuck in the chimney stack or it could have even made a nest in there.
Our chimney sweeps have been called out to help in many of these incidents. Seek the advice of your local Guild Sweep who will be able to clear any nest and suggest a suitable terminal / guard for your chimney so it doesn’t happen again!
