3rd May 2010 - The Tale of Two Nests

Jake and I went out early today to look at two nests that we ringed last year.

The first was a Grey Wagtail nest in an outflow pipe on the edge of the sluice at Warnham LNR that last year we ringed two broods of four and five nestlings and the adult male. Today the nest held five young and the adult female which were all ringed. The adult male is still the same bird as last year so I would assume that this is the same female. (Photos below)We then went over to a local wood where a Tawny Owl pair nested in a chimney box last year, but on inspection the box hadn't been used at all this year.

Birds ringed:
Grey Wagtail - 1 + 5 nestlings
