Abstract: During a search for Fan-tailed Warbler Cisticola juncidis nests at Fiddien on 10th June 1980, a female was flushed from a nest containing four eggs. The nest was next inspected on 16th June 1980 when the female was again incubating. On 23rd June the nest was found unattended and the four eggs were cold. It was presumed to have been deserted, probably as a result of the eggs being infertile.
