Mystery object number two
Now this really is a mystery object, and I am not sure that I will ever find out what it is/was.
It is on an adjacent flat roof to our kitchen, so without ladders I will not be able to get up close and inspect it. I believe it must have been picked up by a gull and dropped there - this is the sort of thing that they do when not screaming their bloody heads off from dawn till dusk.
It is only about 5 or 6 inches high, and when I saw it I noticed something strange about it, so I got a pair of binoculars. Still not being able to see it properly, I got a zoom lense camera and took this photo - I'm still no wiser.
All I can say is that it is something greenish and organic, wrapped in two different sizes of netting, and I do not know if the netting is wire or cord. If it were not for the two different sizes of net, I would have said that it is one of those meshes that stop birds from nesting in pipes which is clogged with plant matter.
It reminds me of a Budhist monk who has been meditating on the ocean floor for a number of years, then halled to the surface by two competing fishermen.
Then maybe it is an exiled alien, dropped onto planet Earth for some misdemeanor in another world?
