Today saw the start of the nesting season in the Wildlife Gadgetman garden with the discovery of a pair of Robins building a nest.

I had noticed the Robins hanging around the Ivy covered archway through to the rear garden for the past few days but today I noticed one of them making continuous visits to one particular spot with beaks full of leaves and moss etc.

Nesting has begun!

I have a number of camera set ups that I’ve developed over the years that enable me to position a camera overlooking a nest in just a few seconds. So, timing my activity between visits by the bird, I positioned one of my HD cams overlooking the nest site.

To be honest the Robins took me a little by surprise as I wasn’t expecting any nesting activity this early in the year especially as the weather has been so awful.

Here is a short clip showing the activity.

Nest Diaries Added To Website

I’ve also added a new section to the website for 2014 called ‘Nest Diaries‘ This is where I will keep a daily record of all the nests I monitor throughout the year. You can find the new section under the Live Cams heading in the top navigation menu.
