We have four currently active nests this year; there is often a fifth which is a late starter, and that couple usually only have a single brood.


The photo shows the newly discarded empty eggshell, as the parents do their regular housework.


It was tinged with much sadness however, as our eldest rescue dog also passed over Rainbow Bridge that morning too. She has been buried on the Reserve as have all the rescues which have passed on over the years.
