Teapot Robin Cam
I mounted this little ceramic teapot nester in the ivy outside my conservatory. It has been there about three years, with nothing taking any interest. In Feb, I noticed that there was moss in there and, on closer examination, realised that there was an almost complete nest in there! I was pretty sure it was a robin and a trail cam confirmed this. I then set up a camera and gradually moved it closer and closer, ensuring it did not disturb her building. It is a beautiful nest and a lovely image on the camera.
These robins have been called Rosie and Lee (Rosie Lee is cockney rhyming slang for tea!) and I hope they go ahead and raise a family here in this lovely site.
