Wood Pigeon Nest

This is Bertha! She has chosen to nest in a quite exposed top of the hedge, right outside my bathroom window! From the window, I can see down into her nest, where she has 2 eggs. I am not sure when these are due to hatch, but I quickly position a camera on the top of the holly, next to her nest, when she nipped off. She came straight back and on to the eggs, without realising she is now live streaming across the world!

I have only ever followed wood pigeons once before, so I am looking forward to seeing what happens with this nest. Being in quite an exposed location, she is going to face issues with predation, but I am hoping the proximity to the house might make that a little less likely.
