We're well into the breeding season now and that means nests, eggs, chicks and juvenile's. Roving BTO nest finder Steve Carter has been over to the farm and found a few nests as well as checking on our nest box colony which up til now (touch wood) has been quit successful. Lee Parsons also has been over on a couple of occasions and found Steve a meadow pipits nest and has also took some nice photographs of some of the nests.
First our Tawny owl, only one chick reared but it has successfully fledged.
