I have just had a log burner stove installed in ( what was ) the open fireplace of my living room.
The metal pipe lining from the stove exits of course through the traditional chimney on the roof.

What I am starting to wonder is ~ what about the gap between the round metal pipe, and the oblong chimney space ?

Is there not a danger of insects / bees / wasps / small birds / rats or whatever getting trapped in that gap ?

Is this me worrying about nothing or is it a known issue and something which needs a remedy like maybe concrete or other substance to block the gap at the top of the chimney ?

I am not in Portugal at the moment and have had these pics sent to me by the builder who did the work. It would need a lot of dictionary work to try to explain my worry. [ But maybe there's nothing to worry about ? ]

PS: I have noticed that in the posting the pics are distorted ~but if you right click on the image and then 'open in a new window' they come right and you can see what I am getting at ( I think ) .
