Although some of our bird boxes have gained some nesting material over the last few days, none seem to becoming a nest - it is still a little early for nesting - especially while it remains fairly cool! - if things change, will place a notice and link here straight away - in the meantime, as a consolation, we have noticed today that a pigeon has nested in a tree at the front of our house - and has one egg (now two eggs) (NOW TWO CHICKS BEING FED!!)  !! - live camera installed!-  - It is interesting to note that the pigeon does not seem to leave the nest for food very often  - but unlike blue tit chicks who each need an incredible 100 grubs a day, baby pigeons feed on "crop milk" produced by female and male pigeons, for the first week or so! ("Crop Milk" is a gloopy milky nutrition produced in the bird's crop, by male and female birds to feed chicks) It also seems that the female pigeon sits on the nest from evening to the morning and the male does the day shift!
I have put the bird feeder camera back online after some changes at Google meant it was blocked - you may see a warning that it is "NOT SECURE" - but of course I am not asking you for credit cards of anything like that so it is NOT a security risk - some may still find that the feed is blocked - please try another browser like Edge of similar to see if that helps - "You likely have lots of birds of your own - but if you want to watch birds at a feeder, in a tree in our garden, CLICK HERE!

Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
...............Friday 19 Apr - Sunday 28 Apr
From Friday onwards and into the new week a build of high pressure will likely occur, meaning more in the way of dry weather across the UK as a whole. Cloud cover is rather uncertain, as some cloudy and clear regions are expected, with the chance of frost and fog where the clearer conditions are to be found overnight. A few light showers or some will still be possible at times, if these develop they will be slightly more likely to affect northern and eastern areas. Temperatures will overall be close to average, probably quite a muted daily cycle in cloudier areas. However, in clearer areas, some chilly nights are likely alongside days that will feel fairly mild in any sunshine.
Monday 29 Apr - Monday 13 May
Towards the end of April, high pressure will probably be close to the UK with a good deal of dry weather for many areas. Moving into May, these settled conditions will probably move northwards, with the driest weather across the northwest of the UK. If any more unsettled conditions develop these are more likely to affect south with a risk of some heavy rain or showers. Temperatures will probably be close to average overall, with warm days but some colder nights........................
