Which birds nest is this?

I found myself under pressure to reduce the height of my laurel hedge, but I held off  due to the nesting season. It did desperately need lopping though, it must have been 25ft tall.

Thanks for the replies. Im keeping the nest and my 7yr old son will be taking it to his schools 'Show & Tell' session.

Ive kept the nest, complete with the forked branch it was built in, though I'm not sure what to do with it. It does have lots of droppings on the outside which must be unique to just a few birds?

I was pruning the large laurel hedge in my garden today, when I came across this small nest. It was about 15ft off the ground and is quite small. Anyone know which bird made it please? Im thinking Goldfinch?

It has a waxy surface, meaning weed killers don't always work, Try breaking the stem and then applying weed killer so it gets into the plant.

FR, does the pond overflow in heavy rain or do you close the taps off on the water butts?
