Building Begins.



This morning the Robin has been collecting moss from the lawn and other materials from the garden and is busily building a nest in the ivy behind the 'blue' nest box. These shots were quickly taken through the window but hopefully I'll be able to get some more 'outdoor' shots very soon.  FAB.

  4. Well done Frank, nice photo's. My garden's too small for nesting birds, all the other birds around the feeders put them off

  6. John. There were a number of sorties for moss and I took a peek later this pm and the nest cup looks fairly well complete.

    Susan. All we need now is confirmation that they will take up residence.

    Crista. Thanks. Hopefully you'll get a few opportunties soon.

    Warren. Mine's also small and the site is close to feeders so they may not actually use it...time will tell.

    Roy. Possibly but the light was also better, for once!

  7. I was thinking that too Roy, you have nice clean windows Frank! I would LOVE to have any bird building a nest in my garden. Is this a regular Robin nesting in the same place each year Frank?

  8. Hi Frank,

  9. Bob. Definitely and it does it without sub-contracting.

    Jenny. I can only presume it is the SAME Robin as the location is the same spot as last year but to my knowledge the nest was abandoned. I'm just hoping they don't get disturbed this season.

    Chris. Very happy, plus a couple of 'outdoor shots to post next.

  16. Mary. Yes, have to be careful not to interupt the work otherwise they may not stay!

    TonyC. A certain sign that Spring has sprung at last.
