Best Bird's Nests

My favourite bird's nest this year is the Goldfinch who successfully reared two chicks in my Weeping Standard Rose- Sander's White- I found it by chance whilst pruning in June- the tiny bright red head surrounded by cascading white roses made a lovely picture. She reared two chicks- what a lovely start to life!

The other great nest was a little wren who sat through two Open Garden events and several Teacher Training sessions - nesting in the sleeve of the School Garden Scarecrow! thank you to all our garden visitors who repected her privacy!wren nest in scarecrow june 2013
