Tip toeing round nesting sites

Just down the road from our favourite Scarlet Robins, a pair of Eastern Yellow Robins have also decided that an early start to Spring means early nest building.

This one, I practically walked into, despite being told at the time, “It’s just there on your left, you are TOO close.”

Oh.

  1. Hi Dave – a gorgeous series of shots..what neck of the woods. It is certainly a privilege to watch these birds set up home. I currently have my eyes on a pair of Peregrines in Niddrie Quarry…close for me to watch.

      We’ll see
