This box has been at a standstill for weeks with just a small amount of nesting material. Today, or yesterday, building has started in earnest. Still hope for a late nest for me Very Happy

Oh only just noticed this Gina,
Looks like maybe still hope for people without a nest.
Nest building 7th May though so late isn't it!
Maybe her nest was disturb somewhere else.

Hi all....still reading all your updates....

Just popping in, because I also noticed this activity in Box 2....and to coincide with this, yesterday I got some interest in the new Cedar box.

I won't hold my breath. But, yes, indeed, when you see that even a tried and test nest box is getting late interest, then there is some hope for the rest of us.

Like I say, I won't hold my breath....just found it interesting though, that after weeks and weeks of nothing that suddenly, I get a visit.

Thanks Sammi, been watching when I can. Knew something was happening in box 1 as each time I watched she was fidgety and delving upside down, just didn't get to see chicks. I also counted 3 eggs in box 2, wonder if there are any more hidden?

Does anyone know when Malcolm and Elizabeth's fledged in box 1. Was it early this morning before camera was on? Was sure they were still there last night. Anyone know?
