    I've moved a Birdbox with baby birds -

    Good morning, I've just been to check on little fella and he's gone! I'm absolutely amazed and feeling fantastic today. I didn't see them leaving, I did hear commotion a couple of times yesterday, chirping and flapping, and went out to look and checked the tree but couldn't see anything...

    An update today: They have all flown away! ... apart from 1 :-( We have 1 little baby blue tit still in the box. He's breathing and looking around but for some reason they are not coming back for him. I'll peek again in the morning but he is very tiny (half the size that the others...

    Wow this is good to hear, I read up on moving nests before I did it obviously and had read some cases of it being done... but then started panicking after a few hours when the parents disappeared and thats when I turned to this forum for advise. So they are moved back now with fierce...

    Its all starting to look a lot more promising, the box in on the fence and there is a tree next to the fence. Fingers tightly crossed they will goto the tree. x

    I wonder if you can tell from this picture? The doggies do come in at night time so perhaps I can remove the netting in the night and hopefully save some birds! :-)

    This is my first ever bird experience, as you probably guessed, so not familiar with the species, I’m trying to work out how to post a picture for you that I snapped of the mum. Great information that some don’t go to the ground, I will research this more 😊

    That will be the biggest challenge! I’m off to buy some bettering today but fear this might not be a good enough barrier for intrigued terriers!

    Thank you Delia & Foggin for being there for me last night and giving great advice. I moved the nest back at midnight and pleased to let you know this morning the parents are back, happily chirping away and feeding their babies. Thank you again, it may have been a different story without...

    Others may disagree with your hopes of them coming back in the morning? I’ve just been out there with torch and moved it back. I’m praying that they will come back but so worried as they’ve been nowhere to be seen all evening ����

    Thank you for your reply, so do you not think the parents will hear the baby’s calling and find them? Its almost midnight here in UK now but if I have to go out there with a torch and move it back I will

    I've moved a Birdbox with baby birds -

    I moved into a property in September which has a doggy day care centre attached. I discovered a bird box in the tree on the patio where there are lots of dogs playing every day. I checked in the box and there were baby birds that would not stand a chance with all the dogs waiting for them when...
