These sound like Robin Eggs, which are smooth, non-glossy and are either white or pale blue with reddish-brown speckles. They measure about 20 mm by 15 mm.

Robins are Britain’s national bird, and are a firm favourite with lots of people; not only because they are lovely to look at, but they can become quite tame. It is not unusual for a Robin to sit within a couple of feet away from you (sometimes even closer) while you work in the garden, waiting for you to turn up some food for it.

It isn’t easy to tell male and female Robins apart; they are both little plump birds with a bright orange-red breast, face and throat, with cheeks edged with grey, a white belly and olive-brown wings and upper parts. Some people claim that the brown forehead is a ‘V’ shape in females and a ‘U’ shape in males, though this is not definitive.

A juvenile Robin has no red feathers in order to give it some protection from adult birds in territorial disputes. Robins are very territorial birds; not just in the spring and summer breeding birds, but also in the winter when food is at a premium, and they will defend their territories to the death.

In winter, immigrant Robins may join the British Robin, mostly from Scandinavia; these birds are a little paler and their red breasts are also a duller shade of red. Another difference is they are usually not as tame as our Native Robins.

A Robin’s nest is made from grass, moss and dead leaves and is lined with hair and wool. They are ground feeders, and their nests tend to be low down as well, usually in holes in tree stumps, or banks and walls, though more unusual locations such as plant pots are not out of the question.
