But East Anglian Daily Times photographer Andy Abbott stumbled across this nest of Robin chicks by accident in his own back garden.
Mr Abbott, 52, was trimming conifer bushes at his home on Hardwick Heath in Bury St Edmunds when he was confronted by a row of beaks.
“If I had taken one more snip I would've cut the nest in half,” he said.
