Robins nest.

If you enlarge this photo you will see a Robins nesting box in the centre of the ivy. It is well hidden, in the right position and on a huge dying tree trunk. Its also in the copse so nice and quiet but will the robins use it, no they will not. Last year to my horror the robin built the nest at the base of the old apple tree. When you have two dogs and a roaming neighbours cat, not a good idea. So I built a fortress around it and she laid three eggs. Unfortunately with the heavy rain last year the nest got very wet and she eventually abandoned it. I am hoping the robins will do better this year.

I hope your robins do okay this year too. I enjoyed looking at your recent posts - very beautiful photos. I can certainly understand why you love living there! I love your header photo by the way - it just makes me smile!
