Just found a nest in my hedge contains 4 eggs.
Does anyone know what bird has laid them and any info on when they might hatch.
Obviously I will be leaving them until they have hatched.
Many thanks.
Jeff.

I suspect that they are abandoned at this time of year, but Blackbirds nested and reared a chick successfully in my garden in March this year.

Hard to judge size, if around 15mm long ish then Blackbird (normally greener/bluer) or Thrush I think - does the nest have mud holding it together?
If smaller then sparrow.

Birds, definitely, tortoises don't nest in trees.
