Has anyone got any birds nesting in their garden?

We have a birdbox web cam that has a couple of Great Tits making a nest in it atm, it's very exciting and I can't stop watching them at work.
The kids are really into it and I'm a bit worried what will happen if we don't have a successful hatching sad
We also have robins nesting in our sunroom! I'm not sure that's going to be as successful but if we shut the door they use the broken cat flap and come in that way!

Oh wow! A nest - cam.

How's this working out?

We have lots of pied wagtails here for some reason, but sadly no chiff chaffs- I am perplexed.

I have about three million swifts in various outbuildings. And many jackdaws. The starlings and sparrows live further up the road, so I'm not as aware of their nesting habits, though having said that there are sparrows in the eves.

We have robins and starlings this year.
Last year we had blackbirds but the fledgelings had an unfortunate meeting with Cat2.

We have swifts! Also swallows, goldfinch and of course millions of blue tits. Fingers crossed, flycatchers too.

Love spring/summer!

We have wood pigeons nesting behind the sky dish for a third year in a row and blackbirds and blue tits nesting in the hedge.

Blue tits in a nesting box, house martins under the eaves.

We have a blackbirds nest in the hedge next to the garage. Am now very paranoid about local cats, magpies and sparrowhawks and if spotted they are getting chased away. We think robins may have a nest at the bottom of the garden in the hawthorn but not definitely sure.
Love it so much - I spend hours just watching the birds on the birdtable, in the birdbath and generally around the garden.

We have a nest in the ivy outside the office. I don't know what they are yet, but the chicks make a lot of noise when I get into work. Very demanding of their breakfast.

I'm on permanent magpie watch, the noise the black birds make are awful. I'm out there clapping, flapping throwing things.
I hate it, it's driving me mental!!!
But the baby birds are lovely, so far I've black birds, robins, pigeons, blue tits, goldfinches.
I'd love a nest cam

There is a sparrow nest in the house opposite and we put out lots of food & they are getting very bold and will fly over for the mealworms even if we are sitting near the feeder! The sparrows more or less ignore DD which is lovely for her as she gets to see them really close up!
