The disappearance of the summer’s leaves reveals some interesting things

Like this snug little nest in the climber on the vegetable plot wall.

I hope you like it, because I froze my fingers off taking that photo…


Here’s how it looked this morning. I hope it’s as snug as it looks, if it is being used as a winter roost

    Really appreciate your freezing for those – that close-up is completely perfect. x

    thanks. The rest of the shots were horribly blurred due to numb fingers and shivering!

    Looks like a wrens nest, you may well find that they use it as a roost through the winter as well. Worth watching through binoculars from somewhere warm…

  4. disgruntled says:

    good point and may explain why it’s still in such good nick

    Is that moss on the outside or evergreen twigs? I’ve got some “bird houses” (decorative — too low for breeding nests) on posts in my front garden, and I’ve found “refuge” nests in them. They’re low and sheltered from the wind.

  6. disgruntled says:

    WOL – it’s moss which is probably why it looks so snug, although you’d really want the moss on the inside
    Flighty – thanks

    That bud looks like its ready to open, which is strange in this weather.

  8. disgruntled says:

    It’s certainly mistimed things if so…

    Could the moss be waterproofing?

  10. disgruntled says:

    that’s a good point, I assumed it was mainly camouflage.
