At this time of year, when the trees are leafless, it’s much easier to see empty birds’ nests, and these are a few I found during today’s walk. The first (below) was only exposed because the local authorities have done their usual harsh cutting back of the bushes and brambles that border the local section of the Wales coastal path. It would have been very cosy as it was lined with sheep’s wool. From what I could see from ground level, the other nests were much more basic, stick-and-twig constructions.
