A relatively quiet day on the nest with no intruders and both birds coming in and out. Our male has been continuing to bring the in fish, he tried to give her a small pike several times this afternoon before she finally took it, she didn’t seem that interested in it initially and wasn’t shouting much – she can be a bit contrary our female!
Blue YD is still loafing around on the coast of Senegal, he definitely has a favourite spot near Kharane and has had a few fishing trips out to sea.
We’re really pleased to see our first Swallows and Sand Martins back zooming around and the Great Crested Grebe displaying again. Today we’ve had a male Redpoll at the feeders again and a Goldfinch which is unusual here, meanwhile our Squirrels seem to be shedding their beautiful red winter colour and gradually getting paler.
