What's On The Box


At the weekend, I noticed lots of bits of twig and long grasses on the end of our drive. Then I saw why. How about this for a high-rise nest.

Mrs Dove has been sitting on the nest since I noticed it on Sunday.

The pole is on the end of my drive and is visible from where I sit at my computer so i can keep a close eye on what’s happening.

Fabulous Sue..they are not known for tidy nests so easy to see how you spotted this one !! Great vantage point for viewing them though !!

Seeing as it has foundations - can it not be described as a "tree house"? :0)
