nest building begins

Up with the lark ish this morning, healthy breakfast of yo gurt, fruit and oats and now in the shed waiting for the tea to brew. The birds are in good heart and I observed a blackbird cleaning the path for me. What she appeared to be doing is nest building as she flew off with the plant matter in her beak and vanished into the beech hedge. We had that hedge trimmed last week so just in time methinks. Interesting what you notice looking out at the back garden.
There is actually a pair of blackbirds out there being busy. Looks like the female is doing the scavenging for nest materials whilst the male looks on. No comment at all here…

The starting gun for the new season of growth has been fired.
