In the fine weather of the last few days there has been a huge amount of activity with much tooing and froing. AONs are now up to 52 (Saturday). The bird seen sitting a week ago is still doing so. Birds are continuing to collect large sticks but moss and grass are often recorded. A bird tearing up dead grass in the front garden seemed to have a guard posted on the nearby fence posts whilst it was on the ground and vulnerable. One bird regularly feeding under the feeders and several risking coming into the back garden Rosa to break of sticks, it must be a useful mixture of flexibility and strength as they go to some trouble to break pieces off.
Going round to count the nests I put birds onto the wires.
Jackdaws continue to come into the roost but unfortunately I haven’t been able to locate the feeding flock again to check for monedula.
