Nesting blackbird

She really is in there!

Sitting tight in the middle of the photo is a blackbird on her nest.
 
This blackbird chose a climbing rose in which to build her nest – as close as possible to the back door!
 
Will she be successful?   She has little shelter above her and will get a shock in rainy weather.  There is not much below her – mainly a clematis which looks sturdy but is far from it.
 
She certainly is not worried about humans and took to being pictured like a pro!
 
Fingers crossed she manages to rear her eggs.
