This friendly chap was scratching in my Mother's back garden and didn't budge as I worked out there this morning

Wonderfully caught, all that work they do in building nests amazes me, and says how clever they are in building such structures for their young.

Thank you all for your comments and likes! he built a nest in the jasmine last year but abandoned the eggs, this year he seems to be heading into the evergreen Lonicera which is a bit denser so fingers crossed.
