Our breeding birds are now in the seclusion aviaries, and nest-building is under way.
We have installed new high-definition cameras, which show amazing detail of the activities in the nest boxes.
So far, we have four good nests – all from proven breeding pairs. Nest four is a new pairing, and we are still hopeful of nesting soon.
The female in nest five was hatched in 1998, making her nineteen years old this year! She has built a wonderful nest, and will probably lay a clutch of eggs. The clutch she laid last year was infertile, but she may be used as a foster-parent if the opportunity arises.
