Cowart's Common Room
Robins in here

Yesterday, it was clear that a Robin was working around the tap in the case that you will see below. I should have done something then, but had other things on my mind. Today, the beginnings of a nest were to be seen. I got bubble to try to stop the Robins gaining access - then - I thought - I can do something about this - I have a tap in the greenhouse, not as convenient but perfectly usable. So I removed the hoze off the tap in the box.
Later I set up a perfectly usable connection via the greenhouse. Mr or is it Mrs (how do you tell?) were already busy working away to replace my messing up and starting on the nest.
They enter via the back and build on top of the straw insulation aroung the pipe, hiding the tap in the process. Sadly, last time they did this, someone got at them when smallies in the nest. I am thinking of how to prevent this happening again.
It blurdy won't do anything about the picture so you'll have to do without! It is a rising pipe with a tap which is wnclosed by a wood box with a lid to protect it from frost. Will put up a pic when the site allows me to!
