Spring is well under away and we’re getting ready for the 2016 season
Some weeks ago we’d noticed a beautiful little wren’s built into a small coil of blue nylon rope that was hanging from a step ladder in the garden shed. However, being only just past the tail end of winter, we thought no more of it at the time and we didn’t visit the shed again until the garden suddenly exploded into life a few weeks ago.
The wren’s nest was still there but, as there didn’t seem to have been any activity in or around it, we thought perhaps it had been abandoned. Imagine our surprise and delight when it came time to get out the ‘big strimmer’ and we opened up the shed again to find a nest full of hungry little chicks! (We counted six)
