The new nest that you can see belongs to a Robin. It is within inches from our heads when we are in and out of our kitchen. In previous years the nest has been used by a Wren. Until last year every nesting has been successful. The Wren nest was a ball shape with a tiny entrance hole. Last year a Magpie raided the nest and we found the nest on the floor. I stuffed the nest back hoping that a Wren would return. There is a Magpie close by this year, so there is a chance that it will raid the Robins nest. Yesterday a Magpie fledgling was under one of the cars out side, close to the kitchen door. Tass and Kye were looking under the car, I must confess I wasn’t that concerned that they may have got the fledgling.

The Goose returned to the Lake this morning, calling out as she arrived. She didn’t stay long, again calling as she left in the direction of the Valley. It was quite misty around the Farm and I don’t know why but she turned to fly back in the direction of the Lake, it may have been the mist but as she flew over the Farm she was calling a little louder, maybe the last call hoping for a reply from her lost Goslings.
