Boys and girls,
This is my first post.
We have a thrush nest in our garden, about four feet above the ground in amongst some tangled thick ivy. All has been well and the mum has been backwards and forwards to the nest over the last few weeks.
I am worried that the nest may now have been abandoned. The chicks are in their as I can hear them as im doing my gardening but "mum" hasnt been around all morning.
Excuse my lack of knowledge, but is there a a pattern to feeding ?
Does the mother leave the nest for prolonged periods to get food ?
Its maybe that im used to seeing activity from the mother yet nothing at all today so far.
