Baby Blackbirds

I had noticed some Blackbirds flying in and out of a box hedge in the garden, so decided to have a quick look. I found the most perfectly constructed nest, but couldn't quite see if there was anything inside. So I fetched my camera, stretched my arm inside the hedge and took a snap ... bit out of focus, but there were definitely some bright blue eggs inside.

I went back the next day to have another quick peep and to my surprise the eggs had hatched and a beak was sticking up out of the nest. Have tried to leave them alone, but I keep catching Bug Mad Girl peering into the hedge. Mummy Blackbird doesn't seem to mind too much, so I will keep an eye on them from a distance.
