We’re deep in the woods this episode, where the search for nest sites gathers pace. What do you find when you sit and wait; what happens when you track and follow?
Here are photos of the letter we received, the licence, and the conditions attached to the wild take.
The recent dry weather has given us lovely, fresh-looking plucking sites to find. This was a blackbird, killed near the golf course.
Who built this nest? Who repaired it? Does anyone live in it now?
Some really tiny flight feathers found on the island: goldcrest?
Lemony seamróg garnish with your St. Paddy’s Day blackbird, Mr. Musket?
