Clematis Blackbird Nest

I discovered this blackbird nest on the 20th May. It is on the other side of my patio trellis fence, deep in the clematis that hangs over the lane I live on. I popped a  Birdsy camera on the nest on the 21st and could see straight away that there was at least one, very new, chick. So far, I have only seen the female. If a male is not around, collecting food and caring for the chicks could be difficult. We'll have to watch and see!
