It's difficult setting up home!

Yesterday Embee was pruning the loganberry bush and tying up the new shoots for next year and look what he found......
.....we have a little Blackbird who spends a lot of time down near these bushes and now we understand why! He clearly thought a nest above where I feed the tortoises was the ideal spot. It never got finished, however, that didn't stop the blackbird taking the fruit whenever he got the chance. Very poor photo but this is the possible squatter, funny thing though, I don't recall seeing the female!

I've got a small birds nest in one of my gutter spaces here. it's been there for about four seasons now, and i haven't touched it. And yes, they come back to the same nest each time. they don't hassle me, so i won;t hassle them. it's a nice sound. I'm glad Spring is back here, because they'll be back again soon.

So, would that be called a Bachelor Padnest?

Good grief! That just has to be a male's nest.
