Look what has decided to nest in our log pile!
The bird in question is a wagtail, 2 years ago they nested in a pile of breeze blocks, this year they've found a gap in between some logs and nested in it. Mum had noticed it flying about in this area for the last couple of days and managed to spot the nest this morning. We're not sure if the first nest failed (remember the dreadful weather we had a couple of weeks ago?), or if they normally raise 2 broods in a summer.
Either way, we'll be keeping our distance (though they seem pretty used to us coming and going), and we hope to have some wagtails hatching soon.
