The afternoon I decided to walk the stream through the woods as this type of habitat can provide excellent linear areas for nesting Wren and Robin. After 5 minutes of walking I left the path to join the stream and saw a Wren flush from bluebells. Knowing that Wren do not nest in bluebells it was time to check the nearest tree trunks and sure enough, there it was. Fantastic start but unfortunately it was the only one I found.
Not sure yet but tomorrow could be an all out assault on Wren nests, only 390 Wren nests submitted nationally in 2015
And the images -

Song Thrush young not far away from fledging (with luck)
a mystery this one but certainly worth further investigation
