Just before leaving for work this morning I managed to capture this Song Thrush gathering nesting material.
It's the female that builds the nest using grass and twigs then lines it with mud.
She will lay between four to six eggs and incubate them for two weeks.
The young birds will spend up to sixteen days being fed by both parents before they leave the nest.
I hope to share more images of the parent birds as they bring food for their young family.
I can't (and won't) share the nest... it's illegal in the UK to disturb a birds nest.
The image below was taken during 2008.
Same fence on the exact same spot as the image I captured this morning.
Song Thrushes are lovely birds to see... even with a mouthful of worms.
