Blackbird nest not in a good place - what do I do?

Somewhere there's a mammal feeding its family .... just the way of things. 

Why have the bluetits attacked the wire of my nest cam?

Just because we provide them with 'ideal' nesting places, that doesn't remove their natural instinct which tells them to prepare the site.

You can't do anything - as Nut says, it's part of nature.

Also, it's against the law to interfere with nesting birds.

Maybe create more options for nest sites in future years?

Hosta - maybe the tits are busy incubating eggs?

LilyP - wasn't that Clarice posting last night?  It was good to see her - she'd not been around for a bit.

It's what is thought to have caused a severe decline in the greenfinch population in the UK in the recent past ........ I understand that numbers are now picking up as people are beginning to understand the importance of cleaning the birds feeders.  Certainly when we came here in 2011 we didn't see any greenfinches - last year we saw several - fingers are crossed. 

Just need to vent...

Once  UK governments started raising funds (and buying friends) by selling off licences for tv channels it was bound to happen ........

I've got an Alpina Pamela Jackman on a north-facing fence - it blooms it's socks off every year and is loved by wrens, robins and families of fledgling blue tits.

Good morning LilyP  

OH has wielded the vacuum ... the thing is that there's quite a large shard missing from the rim of the jar ..... OH said it shot off through the air ........ I suspect it may lurk among plants on the windowsill .........
