The nests (likely of Blackbirds) have been collected, for use as speaking aids in educational presentations on birds. I'm sure their original builders (whose descendants are still nesting here) would be pleased.

COG did years ago have boxes of old nests that we trotted out at exhibitions, maybe those are still kept somewhere. That is when COG would put on exhibitions. Though I don't know if they are much use if we aren't certain whose nests they are. Collecting feathers and other bits (and eggs that I don't think any of us would do these days) requires a permit. Probably doesn't apply to nests. Philip
