It looks like a Wren, and I wonder if the male feeds the female if she's incubating the eggs that's why you don't hear chicks yet.

In reply to Alan:
I'd say wren too, judging by the photo and the behaviour.

Thank you for the replies. I just checked out details of wren on RSPB site and it looks the same and listened to its chirping on the computer, and and our wren immediately starting chirping outside exactly the same!
