Blackbirds Nesting.

Still quite misty today in County Mayo as we say “it’s a soft day” There are a number of different birds nesting in the garden and sheds at Haremoon Cottage.  This year we have two Swallow nests in the garage so that’s a no go area at the moment and three Blackbirds nests in far side of the turf shed.

The photo is not great but I do not like to go too near as it may disturb them.

“The blackbird closely sits upon her nest to hide her young brood from the rainy day.” John Clare.
