Robin nesting on bag of potting compost

March 31st, 2015

Today, I  discovered that Mr & Mrs robin ,who have sat out the winter in our four span poly tunnel have made a nest alongside  one of the potting benches, inside an open bag, on top of the compost. We don`t need the compost but we do need access to the potting bench at this time of year. Hopefully they have  got use to us and will go on raise her brood successfully. Robins  can get remarkably tame around us humans. Perhaps we can have a symbiotic relationship in the greenhouse, we will look out for them in exchange for them  keeping the greenfly population under control.
