Eggs in the blackbird nest...


Eggs in the blackbird nest...

So pleased the blackbirds decided to re use the nest by the side of the kitchen window. I can just see 3 eggs from the bedroom window.

The female doesn't leave the nest for long. Just enough time to grab a bit of food we make sure is available for her all day.

I've seen a blackbird( male), busily taking beakfulls of worms off somewhere, I've no idea where the nest is tho'.Will just have to wait till I see the young ones appear.
Happy watching, keep us posted.

No sound of chirruping yet, so didn't like to keep opening the bedroom window wide enough to look down. I will give it another couple of days and look again when I see her on the garden.

I spent about 30 mins. this morning watching Mr& mrs Blackbird going backwards and forwards to the Mahonia,which is right at the bottom of the garden, think there must be some eggs in there. Fascinating stuff, there was so much crammed in his mouth. :-)
