Nests starting, Dunnock chicks

Activity has started in my nest boxex, with 7 nests having started. Blue tits mostly, although two are uncertain, one is possibly a Pied Wagtail, in an open fronted box, behind the summer house. The worry is that previously this box has been attacked and eggs destroyed.
The other is one of my original boxes, which is situated up in an ash tree completely surrounded by ivy. Also open fronted, it has moss and leaves coming out of it being totally filled with the material. No real idea which bird has made it.
Whilst down by the river trying to train a rambling rose up a birch tree I saw a pair of Dunnocks were upset by my presence, backing off I saw one go into a small privet bush, where there was a nest with at least three chicks in it. They do normally have more than 1 brood, but it must have been an early start for them as the chicks were probably over a week old.
No sightings of any of the returning summer birds, should be any day.
