Going going gone
I’ve not been sleeping well. As usual I awoke early to check the parent blackbirds were busy and all seemed a bit quiet. I could only see one beak above the nest rim too.
I lasted until about 11.30am until I moved the leaves to look, and found there was only one baby in the nest.
There were definitely 5 yesterday but bursting out of the nest so we were expecting this. See extra.
Here is the last baby bird sitting on the vine. I hope by now his parents have found him and encouraged him out. Am fervently hoping for no cat related disasters tomorrow.
