"A nest with a view"

ravens were messing up the nest and 33 has just arrived
and chases it
33 now putting things back in order
33 had flown and the ravens returned messing up the nest again
33 returns with a large and the ravens flee
once more pottering about
33 is still on the nest just looking around.
As I type, 33 has flown.
Morning Jane - 33 is back on the nest just now. Hope you see him :-)
He has been tidying and having a nest scrape
but mostly just standing guarding his nest
Not seen Maya on the nest as yet but I did see the nest shake so she may be around.
