A lady showed me this in her back garden. I called in to talk about hedgehogs, as she feeds them.

She has a highland terrier that keeps the cats away.

I can't work out the differing angles of the wood, Willpar. Is it fencing or maybe a shed ??
Anyway, the blackbird looks very snug, secure and happy :D.

Hi Placi, it is one of those structures some people have in their garden. Has an apex roof, two sides and a back. No front and has a garden seat in it. Blackbird nest is in the roof. I think there is a plank missing and that is where the blackbird managed to build it nest in.

Oh, I see :nod:.
I couldn't make sense of the wood angles :rolleyes2: :scratch:. Good for the blackbird - make use of any advantage :).
