Birds down your chimney?

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.

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.

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!
