in garage port

This is the third blackbird nest I have put a camera on this spring. Both the previous nests were completed by the female but never used. This new nest has been built on the edge of my garage port, on the other side of the lane from my house. I did not have a spare camera here until my chiffchaff nest was raided, at which point I moved the camera over to this female. She has built the nest under the ivy that is growing over my garage port. It is well covered and quite dark in there, hence the camera image is lacking in colour because the camera is using IR.

I carefully mounted this camera just to the right of her nest and she didn't even get out... just watched me! Let's hope this nest is not predated and that we are able to watch her raise her family.
