Wow! Thats amazing! Lucky you. Was just saying to OH that we shall put some nesting boxes up in the autumn. We do have a couple of house sparrow nests and one Swallows nest, but we cant see any of them. We did have a Blackbird nesting in the log pile, but OH disturbed it accidentally, not knowing it was there, and the birds abandoned it. Blackbirds do nest in stupid places. :(

Thanks all , We usually find several nests in the garden but not so this year we have had loads of stray cats & squirrels I've seen them watching the birds at their feeding tables , I have found broken egg shells so maybe they are more cunning at hiding the nests . Kat I don't knit at all clever little birds must find bits on their rounds , Julia I wasn't at all sure the photo would come out Tony had seen the Gt Tit previously taking worms down the pipe and was suspicious he then peeped down with a torch that was 2 weeks ago so we are assuming this is a second clutch of eggs it was pitch dark I held the camera over the pipe and used the flash , I wonder how the young fly upwards to get out ?

Fabulous photo Amy ... aren't their nests such a work of art? We have been watching a pair of Blackbirds stealing the hanging basket coir liner for their nest building. Fascinating ... :o)

Awesome pic! Do you think they can handle 2 feet to get out? They might need your help?
