Linking Thoughts

Sunday, March 11th 2018

I went shopping yesterday for something specific for our fund raising coming up to Easter, and was successful.  Working on this little project, made my thoughts turn to the nest box season.  (Apologies you will have to wait a little longer for more details.) 

Over winter, as has been reported on the blog, the nest boxes have been repaired or replaced.  The first boxes to be checked are those of the Tawny Owls.  Sometimes the adult birds can be caught at the box.

There is often quite a variation between boxes.  Some will still have eggs whilst others will have all the eggs hatched.

As the chicks grow so they become more curious.

Foxglove has its own owl boxes but there are many spread across the training area and whilst out  there in early spring, and often quite cool temperatures the weather gives a spectacular display.   Rainbows.

Which then drew my thoughts to early mornings and the first CES in May.  Hopefully there will be some sunny sunrises!

Sunrise?

Amazing how one thought links to the next!
