Nesting Diaries

We've had some really windy weather the last month, with gust of 60mph or more. Unfortunately this nest was blown down about a week ago. The pair had started to rebuild, but today is another windy day with gusts to 40mph and there is no sign of the nest.

This nest is near the area where other "practice" nests have been built. Because the trail is closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the birds are undisturbed and the nest could be a real one. It's quite large already
