The boxes are starting to get used up mostly by blue and great tits and nuthatches. This box is being used by a nuthatch when the female comes off the nest it covers its eggs with leaves.

Next we set off down the old Farm where the spring lambs are out in good numbers they look so cute.
We went to check a Buzzard nest that was not used last year but to our delight they've come back to the site this year and the female is sitting on two eggs.

Steve sent me some pics of a couple of cracking nests he's found at other sites.

He also climbed a Carrion crow who are nesting quite close to the Owls this had four eggs.
