I have been taking my Disgo Video Camera with me when I have been on my walks. I saw this nest swaying high on a branch. I wondered if it would still be there next year. I decided to take a short video of it and see if it is used next year. Yes I know – don’t I have anything better to do!
Isn’t it strange that birds build this nest here where the hedge is not a thick hedge, where the branches sway in the wind and where it is open to the elements.
A few yards away is a much thicker and more sheltered hedge that seems a better nesting place.
About a foot away is a prickly hawthorn that would have kept any predators away from the nest – BUT this nest was built in a hedge that would not protect them much at all.
Again excuse my voice – but I felt a video of an old nest on it’s own maybe wasn’t a good idea.
My daughter is getting married tomorrow in the Peak District. I’m setting off in an hour or two as it is going to be a Wedding Weekend! I have seen my daughter in her wedding dress and she looks beautiful. I thought I would put this short video on before we set off and I actually turn the computer off for the weekend.
I’ve got the bird feeding sorted out. I don’t suppose it would matter if bird food wasn’t put out for a couple of days but a neighbour offered so thats OK.
