These images are of a found bird's nest that had fallen to the ground. I brought it home to take the photos.
Here is the nest on a mirror, showing the top, bottom and a side.
The outer layer is made of sprigs that the bird has glued together, to create a solid foundation.
The second layer consists of pieces of woollen and synthetic threads. Note that the nest seems to have had some insects laying their eggs in it, and the larvae have surfaced through little tunnels, and left their skins behind.
The inside of the nest is filled with soft synthetic padding.
Just picked up Bennie and George from the vet (previous posts here and here). Both OK, and surprisingly animated. Benny lost one of his teeth, photos below. All good, for the almost 10 years old puppies!
