...............the cat hadn't chased the robins away.
For three years we have had robins nest and lay their eggs in the garage. The first year they successfully reared their young. For the past two years a cat has somehow got into the garage and chased them away - these were left abandoned in the empty ice-cream container on the top shelf.
Last year my son suggested that we try to persuade the robins not to nest there. I felt that was interfering, but I wonder if they come again if it is perhaps best to do that
