Nest update: The Song thrush is still sitting on 3 eggs.
The 'witches broom' birch tree, on the righthand side as you drive in on the entrance drive, continues to be one of my favourite places at the moment with the high level of activity occurring within and around it.
The Mallard continues to sit on her nest, it is quite easy to spot as it is in the witches broom covered in fluffy feathers! In the vicinity of the duck, on the right side of the tree round the back a bit, I have also spotted a pair of Goldcrests building a nest, they can be seen taking big mouthfuls of moss over to their nest. At the top of this tree a Great Spotted Woodpecker has been excavating a hole and is regularly heard drumming nearby.
