The nesting game

As we have been tidying up the garden and pruning, we have found a lot of abandoned nests from this year's broods. One, a thrush's nest fell out of a tree as I was picking plums, the other is the Welcome Swallow who was nesting in the eaves outside our bedroom window. Today I tackled washing down the paintwork, because wonderful as they are, they make a terrible mess, and I couldn't bear to look at it any more. The nest on the right is Madam Swallow. She made quite a dandy bed for herself!
