As most you will have noticed, Laird of the Loch has taken to bringing lots of bark and soft material to the nest, but as there is only a tiny bowl where the eggs are sitting, there is no room for any of it! He is become a little overly keen with his architectural skills and trying to impress our Lady, but I think she’d be happier with him if fish was the common delivery. That said, we have had a fish this morning and she seems content for the time being, so we mustn’t berate him too much.
On other wildlife news, all the woodland birds and our squirrels are busy making their nests and dreys, and chasing prospective mates. The woodpeckers are in full drumming mode throughout the day and we are optimistic for some new juvenilles. We have a pair of bluetits who have made a rather cosy looking nest in one of our nest boxes and you can follow their progress on webcam 2. We have seen the loch birds in their fantastic mating displays and already some of our mallards have ridiculously cute ducklings!
