A New Nesting Season Approaches

Mr Durward very kindly helped me clean out the nest boxes last week and modified the boxes to make them easier to clean out in future years. If you look carefully, the colour birdcam box has markings on it which will help us measure the depth of the nest. Let’s hope the birds appreciate our efforts and have a successful nesting season.

The birdcams will be live on the Internet, at least during school hours, from now on. Please let us know if you spot anything.

Our chick has fledged!

Our one remaining chick (in the colour birdcam box) earned his wings this morning, fledging before the start of school. A happy ending to a week which saw the other chicks dying off one by one. Maybe we will see it in the school grounds.
