Beware the blackbirds! Today we spotted a blackbird with beak full of dry grass and twiggy bits flying under the rv and investigated -we have a perfectly formed nest on top of the engine - tried for ages tonight to put the pic on site but can't - we've only been here 3 days!
Please check yours before you set sail

Probably won't sleep tonight listening for flutterings, munchings etc - best keep the bar open a smidge longer.

Its always a good idea to check for nests this time of year, I am sure they have been responsible for few fires. How about this guy, on his way to work and couldn't understand the strong smells coming from the engine. He had a shock when he looked, but it was a good excuse to be late for work...

This unfortunate creature was probably attracted to the warmth and the dark, what a shame, looked like a great specimen.

Yuk! We'll settle for the blackbirds any day!

ps she's still building despite my tinfoil deterrents, we're hoovering out the engine twice a day now and hoping a more attractive rig turns up soon.

Ah, that might explain something. We turned the furnace on a couple of weeks ago and it smelled of toast! Crispy fried mice anyone? :ROFLMAO:

Tell me about it!!

The Winnie is due to go some time next week. The chap is picking her up on Wed the 21st and we have discovered a blue tit nest in the furnace intake complete with three chicks!

Never has there been a better argument for putting a fine mesh grill over all of the exposed holes.

I just hope they can learn to fly in 10 days otherwise I will be responsible for either murder or, at the very least, eviction. Not easy when you are an ardent bird lover!
