I put the glass for recycling out lon the kerbside last night. By way of explanation... before going out it is collected in one of a stack of plastic tubs all other recycling goes in a big separate bin. So I put the tub out. When I got home this evening I found that the tub hadn't been replaced. Why? So I grabbed the tub and went to stack it and what did I see? A nest containing 5 small eggs in the next tub down, a few minutes later when I looked again there was mama robin sat on her brood. So here the problem, what do I do to keep them alive? They are close to the ground so not exactly predator (cat, fox, mouse, rat or hedgehog) safe. And if the eggs do hatch the chicks are going to be unable to get out of the plastic tub that mama nested in. Any help or practical ideas appreciated.
