When we had the conservatory re built on the side three years ago it narrowed the corridor down the side of the house. There was a little robin box left on the fence line but it's always been empty. I've been trying to train the holly and ivy to help conceal it hopefully to give it enough cover for a nest builder to find it acceptable. We seem to have some interest!
And just to show how close the box is, from my window to the box is about 4 feet.
They have been very busy as that amount of leaves and fluff has only taken a couple of days to build up. There are always Blackbirds, Wrens, Dunnocks and Robins flying up and down that corridor and we have plenty of sparrows nesting just to the front of my room. That is where I sit, usually facing to the left of picture but, as you can tell, using the machine too. I spend a lot of time in there and I'm hoping that my presence doesn't put them off nesting, they know I'm there and I don't intend to stop using the space! Robins are very sociable and there are usually several nests in the local garden centre so they will, and should, become used to me.
I'm just off to sneak back in there and hopefully do some sewing so I have something more creative to show you very soon.
