All four Pied Flycatchers have started laying their blue eggs, sadly no further nests started. However all bar one of the Blue tits have started laying eggs in ten of the nests now, only one not started. Also a Great tit has started laying too.
Seems something has taken the young Robins, but have seen another nest with five eggs in the wall alongside the stream on the new barns we acquired 17 months back.
Have been for some walks in Loftty Bard wood where the bluebells are simply stunning.
Have had two hard frosts this week which have caused damage to some plants, potato leaves blackened despite being covered and some lovely azalea flowers are ruined.
