Where are the babies?

Just the day after reading about "Foul deeds on the Towpath" on our friends Dot and Derek's blog www.nzgypsyrover.blogspot.com we stumbled across our very own murder mystery. Guess what awaited us on the front lawn today? A very sad looking empty bird's nest. There was no sign of eggs, no baby birds, no feathers fluttering around, just the lonely sight of an empty bird's nest fallen to the ground. Were the babies murdered and eaten in the nest, we wondered? Did the mother bird dislodge the nest while frantically searching for her babies? Or was it just that the wind whisked the empty nest on to the lawn? Guess we will never know. What we do know, is that we have never seen a bird's nest on the lawn before.

What happened here?

We are not good gardeners, (we would rather be away in the caravan) but we have a few spots of colour in the back garden at the moment. Check out these lovely tiger lilies.
