Camera 1
21 May 2017 : Two definite pairs returned in the middle box on the top row and the left hand box on the bottom row.  There was also pair in the top left box but one bird has been missing for the past few days, we are hoping the missing bird will return or a new mate will be found.

Camera 2
21 May 2017 : This is Box 11 pair and they are in their 3rd year of breeding.  Unfortunately in 2015 and 2016 they knocked their eggs out of the nest and failed to incubate any eggs.  So far this year they have laid one egg and knocked that out of the nest which is not a good sign.  They are a very restless and fidgety pair and this causes the eggs to accidentally rolled off the nest.

Camera 3
21 May 2017 :  This is Box 1 pair and they are in their 3rd year of breeding.  In 2015 and 2016 they successfully reared two young.  They are currently incubating 3 eggs.

Camera 4
21 May 2017 : This is Box 12 pair and they are in their 3rd year of breeding.  Their chicks died in 2015 but they successfully reared two young in 2016 and they are currently incubating 2 eggs.
