This time last year there was a mad scramble to make a starter nest for the Delta 2 pair.
Why? A summer storm had completely snapped the tree they were in - dumping the huge nest on the ground!
Could a starter nest be made before they returned - would they take to it and build again?

After extra donations and some hard work - just in time - a starter nest was built in the tree we had been calling the Barn Tree.


They took to it and spent the Winter adding to it - until, by February it looked ready!


They laid 2 eggs which hatched - but one chick, Pippin, developed breathing difficulties and died!
The remaining chick, Ace, grew up and successfully fledged on July 14th

So here we are st the start of another year - 2016/2017
