Robin's nest uncovered when pruning - what to do?
What looks like a robin's nest was uncovered this morning, when my friend pruned into one of my overgrown shrubs. It's not her fault, she didn't see it until she had done it.
We think hopefully it is an old nest, but don't know.
I have shown the location with a red ring in the last photo - the photo makes it look dark and hidden, but it's actually very visible from the outside.
Have robins stopped nesting this year, is it no use to them until spring?
Should I try and cover it over somehow for now?
Do they make new ones each year in different locations or stick to the same locations/old nests?
How quickly will the branches grow back over it?
Many thanks for any help.
