Blue damselflies and animal rescue part 1

I noticed the first of the blue tail damselflies emerge from the pond today. The blue damselflies always emerge from our pond later than the large red damselflies.

We woke in the night to a commotion outside. When we investigated we discovered our cat with a baby bird. I managed to get the bird away and after checking it over realised it was still alive. It looked like a juvenile great tit, possibly one of the family that had been visiting the garden a few days ago. Maybe our cat had come across it roosting in the tree. I put it in a cardboard box with some bedding and put it in the shed before going back to bed. Dark and quite are what the bird needed if it was going to survive. Many die of shock.
