Hello just joined the forum yesterday, we think we have a little robin nesting in our nest box. We have seen it a few times taking things in to build a nest and now what we believe to be her partner keeps flying over to the nest box and looks like she is feeding her. I only hope the neighbours cats keep well away. Can anyone tell me how long the female nests for before the birds hatch?

Hello Maggzy. and welcome to the Forum.

According to my reference book on such matters, incubation takes 12-15 days for robins.
