All to no avail

The frantic activity ceased.
The nest fell silent.
I don't know what befell them,
but I don't think they fledged as
that takes about 14 days from hatching.
Only about 57% of eggs result in fledged youngsters.

Maybe they will have another brood.
I will keep you posted.

    And speaking of which, how is the visiting cat? Looking, perhaps, rather satisfied of late?

  2. I was thinking of said cat as I read this.
