No sightings all day.
Over the last week or more we have seen first one, and then two robins on a regular basis throughout the day and early evening.
Unfortunately, we have not seen them for over 24 hours. There was no sight of them yesterday evening or at any time today, and so I fear they have left the garden, feeling it is no longer safe to be here.
I have checked all around the garden, and especially around the fir tree and there are no signs of the birds being caught by the cat, but they are certainly no longer to be seen around the garden.
The cat is in the dog house, so to speak and the garden seems less bright for the lack of the little red-breasted birds.
I hope they learn from their experience and nest somewhere safer next time.
