In Dusk We Trust - Some Owling in Co.Durham, North East England, Great Britain

Tumbling pigeons

We had to tackle this :-




Despite checking we didnt spot these:-


they fell down out of nest as its branch tumbled down, & landed in a pile of brush wood . . .


kept them in a cardboard box for a few hours till we were done

The customer insisted on being the one to climb the top of the double extension ladder
 & replace the nest (in bare feet !)


The Cushats were watching the whole time & flew in as the nest was being replaced

Despite the petrol blower going full pelt to tidy up underneath, the bird was straight back on brooding them.

Oh well makes a change from owls. The new header is pretty half decent and I just turned a bright green colour.

Aye, the owls nice, but we're struggling this year.
As a rule we can generally pick can choose which family of 5 or 6 (or sometimes 7 ) to go & look at . . . not this year - dont understand whats going on . . .
