Thanks everyone for your comments, like you say, looks as though it is just a waiting game to see what survives. The winter just seemed to go on forever and late snow and hard frosts have not helped (not sure we are out of the woods yet either).
Fingers crossed, and I will keep an eye on my poor blackbird. I can see her sitting in the nest watching me in my lounge. She is quite tame so I don't think the fact we can see her is gonna be too much of a problem for her. She sees me put food out and comes over and feeds. Might have to put an umbrella up for her if it gets too wet .
