New nest in the garden, already with young in it!

Not a bad day here in Edinburgh beautiful and sunny and decent list for the garden, found a new bird nest!
  1. Blackbird x 2
  2. Blue Tit x 1 – going into the nestbox, there’s still hope there’s something in there.
  3. Carrion crow x 2 Flyovers
  4. Coal Tit x 1
  5. Collared Dove x 1
  6. Dunnock x 5 – most I’ve seen at once, I also found a nest and a rejected egg, the egg was a bit away from the nest and sitting in a bush, I was surprsied to see something so bright blue amongst the green. Guess the poor little guy just didn’t survive, it did get very cold yesterday.
  7. Great Tit x 1 – first I’ve seen in the garden for a bit.
  8. Greenfinch x 1
  9. House Sparrow x 1 – also first I’ve seen in a long time in the garden.
  10. Magpie x 1
  11. Starlings x 1 – flyover
  12. Woodpigeon x 2

Below are comments that got lost when the website went down.
