Pied fest Yesterday.

_J8A5722Very Pleased ….we have 5 nesting pairs of Pied fly catchers in our boxes down at Bills wood- in various stages…these guys are not far off  fledging…..look at what a Grt spotted woodpecker has done to the thin plate hole protector….this one is single ply… will have to resort to three-ply to stop his pneumatic drilling. Unfortunately no Redstarts…one box with six eggs predated by what could only be a squirrel( Ripped the hole protector off and enlarged the hole)_J8A5753 and one with a clutch of two eggs abandoned… pity…but there is always next year… plenty of blue and great tits.  The owl box produced two owlets..Fledged_J8A5786
