The Mistle Thrush nest - found at last - and with one and possibly two chicks in it, April 21st '13

On the Bird walk today, we saw an adult Mistle Thrush with a beak full of worms. We watched to see if it would take them back to the nest to feed young. It moved, in a series of stops in trees, towards a Small leaved Lime and then landed in a fork, where we could see this nest. A young bird, and possibly two could be seen being fed. This photo was taken after the parent had left to look for more food. You can see the head of one of the chicks sticking up from the nest. Blue string was obviously considered as suitable nest material.
