New Season begins

All ready for the new breeding season, bird boxes repaired, replaced and two new locations, making 29 in all I have up this year. Checked them on 4th April and there was moss in two, probably Blue Tits starting their nests. Still only two started when looked again today, however delighted to see a Pied Flycatcher up in the wood, first of the year. Have seen two Redstarts but not at home. Tom, our local farmer, reported seeing two huge 'hawks' on the top, above the wood, 2 days ago and having checked his bird book is convinced they were Osprey. Not so mad as you might think, there being a small lake in the next valley well stocked with brown trout and there have been sightings in previous years at this time in the Elan reservoirs which are only about 6 miles away as the Osprey flies. On the warmer days the bees are very active, with lots of obvious pollen on their legs as they return to the hive. So they seem to have got through the wet winter.
