A couple of weeks ago DH showed me a bird's nest that was tucked away on the fence behind some lattice plastic. We peered in and there were 3 tiny blue speckled eggs. The next day there were 4. A couple of days ago mum had flown off so I thought I'd look in and check the eggs. Dumb me saw some black fluff and thought "Oh no the eggs have gone mouldy" then I looked a bit closer. There were 3 chicks nestled top to toe in the nest. This is nota very good photo as I'm a bit too short to get above the nest but you can just see the chicks. I think the 4th egg failed to hatch. You can just see the egg under one of the babies.
