Homebuilding.........

Over the last few weeks we have watched a robin (2 robins?) build a nest in the hedge in front of our sitting room. Over the last few days there has been constant activity, with a robin flying in and out of the hedge, disappearing deep into it, then re-emerging, over and over again, seemingly for hours on end. In, out, in, out, sometimes with berries in its mouth. Tonight, unable to resist, my mister waited until the robin was in a nearby bush and then he peeked in.....a number of babies! I do hope that this very very quick peep into the nest doesn't mean he has tainted it in some way......the robin has been backwards and forwards so I hope all is well. How lovely to see such activity.....babies...life...nature.

There's no doubt the robins are happy with their home :-) What a treat to be able to watch them - that makes your Home a great place to be !

Better than watching "Coronation Street"...a nice episode of "Robin's Nest" instead!

I'm sure proud Mrs Robin won't mind you admiring her brood. I love to see those open beaks all pointing skywards.

Your own Nature Watch...robins are splendid little birds, and so comfortable around people...keep us up to date as they grow!

Unfortunately, our large ginger Tom ensures that no birds try to nest in our garden. Must be lovely to see.
