Lots has been happening, the cuckoo's are going non stop, often two can be heard. The spotted flycatcher has returned only to find its normal nest site has been occupied by house martins which appear to be back in large numbers and making their nests frantically. The spotted flycatcher were seen checking out various other possible sites, even one got trapped in the greenhouse, thankfully I noticed it and released it.
The Pied Wagtails in the summer house fledged safely at the end of last week. The Blue Tits are hatching and the first of the Pied Flycatchers started on the 27th. 17 nest boxes have had eggs laid in them. Others had nests started but not completed and one nest has been built over the last two days, hopefully eggs to follow.
