Hi, I have been lucky enough to have numerous birds nesting in my garden hedge this year. At present I have pigeons nesting. I've been very intrigued by this as I've never even seen a baby Pigeon before so I've been keeping an eye on it (at a distance). It's quite well concealed in the hedge so not easy to view but I have noticed over the past 2 days that mum has been brooding less than before & I've also noticed a lot of flies on the nest when mum isn't around. I can definitely see movement of 1 chick in the nest but my concern is that another chick may have died in there as I can see something else that looks like a possible chick that hasn't moved. Is there anything I should be doing to help this little family so the remaining chick has a chance or do I just let nature take its course????
