spring

I found an abandoned birds nest in my garden, on the garden wall behind a massive overgrown bush...

5 tiny blue speckled eggs...


I discovered they are blackbird's eggs, I feel sad to think they'll never hatch. Hopefully the blackbirds have another more successful brood somewhere else...

Have you been watching Springwatch? Give me those bird nest webcams over big brother any day...

I bet there's a cat to blame somewhere. We have a blackbird nest in the hedge that my cat keeps leering at!

I think you're right Fiona, there are 2 neighbouring cats in our garden every day sniffing around (and sun bathing!) Hopefully the blackbirds wil next somewhere higher next time!

Maybe you should get a Jack Russell?

I agree with you I would rather watch the wildlife - even though sometimes it is not all nice! Love the colour of those eggs.
