Penny leaves behind a project and starts a new one

What a miserable hot day.  Now I know why I like skiing.

We dropped by Henny and Penny today, and confirmed that she was no longer sitting on her clutch. This would have been about day 14, so they were just about, or had just hatched. But we’d noticed she hadn’t been on the nest at all the previous day, so it was likely that something had gone amiss.  Pity ’cause she is quite the dedicated little robin producer.

I like to know where the nests are so I can stay away. Sounds weird, but the last thing I want to do is stumble over the area where she is ‘secretly’ at work, as she’s likely to abandon the enterprise.  So I waited, and eventually got a glimpse of her working at picking up spiderweb, and then flying across the clearing to a new tree and setting up a new house for another attempt. Can’t knock her enthusiasm.

Hopefully this one will be successful.

The abandoned nest. It is about large enough to fit a golfball and that’s would overfill it. Such a tiny nest.
