I usually imagine the bird has had a near squeak with e predator. I might also be caused by the bird getting into an awkward spot and it lost it's tail escaping.

I found this tiny, light blue, empty eggshell in my garden this morning. I tend to think that it was a successful hatch since the eggshell still has the shape and its quite neatly broken. I'm not sure which bird it belongs to, I looked online and it seem like a dunnock egg?
Here are a couple of pictures with 1 penny coin for comparison :)
