    Sadly there is no bird sitting on the eggs; don't know enough about this to figure out if nest is abandoned.

    The eggs are smaller than my thumb nail.

    I would leave well alone Artjak - the bird may come back - the weather's been quite warm so they shouldn't have got too chilled.  How long since you noticed them?

    Meant to say - they look like robin's eggs and the nest-style fits with a robin.

    Dove, I most certainly will leave well alone; spotted the nest about 5 mins before I posted.image What amazes me is how fast the nest was built and filled.

    There is a very imperious Robin who comes quite close to the house and peers through the windows.
