    We have an old red phone box in our garden. There is a tiny nest perched on the door opening leaver with four tiny blue eggs in it :) I wonder what they are, any ideas?

    An odd place to build a nest but how exciting! :) xx

    Could it be Robins?

    Robin and Blue tits have blue eggs. I had a robins nest in my car last year. They built it in the wheel that is on the back of my car. Couldn't use my car for 3 weeks.
