I found this nest on ground after some fencers
cut down a hedge so put it in nearest tree but i think its will be to late for the egg's
No interactions present.
It say's that they have 4-5 eggs in a clutch and up to three clutches,so with a bit if luck you have saved them the energy of building another nest and incubation may not have started yet.I cannot understand why someone would do this to a nest.
Also worth pointing out it is illegal;
All wild birds are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended), whilst they are actively nesting or roosting. Section 1 of this Act, makes it an offence to kill, injure or take any wild bird, and to intentionally take, damage or destroy the nest of any wild bird while that nest is in use or being built. It is also an offence to take or destroy any wild bird eggs.
The above statement is taken from a Gloucestershire County Council advice leaflet.
That is very useful to know and if anyone see's this happening on there patch I hope they will report it.I am not sure if it would be the R.S.P.B or B.T.O. I knew there was a time slot for when you can cut hedges so maybe this should apply to people fencing too.
Most constabularies have a Wildlife Crimes Officer, check your local constabulary website for details, to who suspected incidents should be reported.
If you do see anything you have suspicion about it can also be reported via
which is an online form (and comes with the expected promises of confidentiality).
I have reported it now to the rspb and they are going to talk to the fencing company
