The chough nest box webcams are now live – click here.
After a long winter of rain, rain, more rain, and then snow, our breeding aviaries are ready for birds. The choughs were put in this morning, and are already checking the boxes.
Later today we will put twigs in the aviaries, and the nest-building will start in earnest.
The recent cold, wet weather has pushed back the start of the breeding season, but looking at the birds’ behaviour, they are ready to go!
