Blackbird nest found in the greenhouse!

Jill Blackbird Nest

This brood of blackbird chicks was found in the greenhouse at JW’s house in Sharow, near Ripon and in a Buddleia asiatica (a very unusual variety of the plant) – the chicks were ringed 5 mins after being found (they were 8 days old) and all fledged soon afterwards!

The nest is being left in place in the hope that there might be another brood….!
