A Blackbird's nest is usually around 9cm in diameter and made up of grass and moss, it’s lined with mud and then covered with fine grass. They have two broods between March and July.
Robins like to build their nests well hidden, usually in ivy, under herbaceous vegetation or on ledges on buildings or outhouses. Often very close to the ground but certainly no higher than 3m.
The nest is made up of moss on a foundation of dead leaves and lined with hair and roots. Tiny at a diameter of just 7cm they may have up to 3 broods between March and June.
Greenfinches sometimes nest in small groups, in low trees or bushes around 1.5m to 5m high. The nest is very untidy and made up of thin twigs, moss, and dried grass. Often lined with feathers, hair, and roots.
Greenfinches have two broods between April and July, very occasionally three.
