Tina, if you can find time to just sit and watch for a while (any excuse, I say!) you'll notice the birds carrying things in their beaks and heading in a certain direction or, if you're lucky, to a particular place.
Because the weather has been so awful I had hardly been outside so didn't spot the nest building activity; it was only when I kept seeing a male blackbird constantly picking up food and heading for my camellia bush that I realised there was a nest. They fledged last week and Mrs B. appears to be sitting in the nest again so there may even be a second brood on the way
