Just got Hellgate cam up and Iris is sitting on the nest calling for Stanley. The Door stop and the Cabbage are still there in front of her. These two do like decorating their nest with strange bits and bobs!
HI Joyce – good to see you had a good day and that you stayed on to try and see the otters. Nice to see Daubenton bats though – a special treat! I would have loved to have been up there today, but my weekend got […]
Hi there everyone, anyone, still up at this late hour of 11.25 p.m. I have just got in from my day out with friends and have caught up with the blog and was so pleased to hear you all had a lovely day up there at […]
Sorry I should have said Thank you to Ann for the diary this morning – excellent job well done from afar and keeping everyone informed of all the news – especially with no nest cam for much of the day! Bye for […]
Lorna I don’t think its brightened up at Lowes at all! still looks dull and grey and windy although Lady looks quite contented sitting there. I wonder if we’ll see Laddie bring in some supper for her before bedtime.
Hi Julie – glad you made it ok and are settled in the hotel. Enjoy the evening with the others that are there! By the way thank you for my little surprise in the post this morning! I will be using it again this […]
Stanley is back at Hellgate with some more stuff. Iris got up and is re-arranging the eggs. Lorna do you remember that purple scarf from last year? Here is that pic I have of the chick lying fast asleep on it […]

I’ve got the Hellgate cam up and Iris is sitting on her eggs. Seems Stanley has been busy gathering things for her to play with – a huge lump of wood and some green stuff – looks like a cabbage lol…..I’m […]
Sounds like you’ve landed in a beautiful cottage Deirdre, hope you’ll take some good pics of it and the view from there! Is it the one you sent me the details of? If so it did look lovely in the pictures.
Hi again everyone – just got home from my washout of a day! Unfortunately the Bird of Prey Experience had to be cancelled because of the bad weather. They don’t like to fly the birds in the rain, or in high […]
Lorna thats very interesting about the Early Grey moth. Can you tell me what those books are that Maria recommended? I have a couple of moth books but as always, the colours vary from book to book, so it would […]
HAHA Ann – I must have missed that being delivered! He certainly is adept at bringing in unusual bits and bobs – remember last year there was that lovely purple scarf on the nest that the chicks sseemed to […]
NUPHAR how lovely to see you! I do miss your entertaining posts and since I only post here now I do wonder how you are and how you are getting on, especially in your garden. I do hope you will post here more […]
