But we've got these threats and who can blame them feeling miffed when the intruder takes over their playpen in the spring?

In reply to Gardenbirder:
Just done a bit of research and it seems there is a very small group in the New Forest, though very rarely seen.
There is also a report of a lone PM in the southern end of Poole Harbour at Sandbanks.
Well done GARDENBIRDER for prompting some digging

Thank you, Richard! I'd no idea they were so far south, but given how shy they are (when they're not pouncing or thieving ;) ) I wonder if the sightings are the tip of the iceberg?
Only some corvid visits so far today - and while the deer were undeterred by the misty frosty mornings I've noticed none this morning.
Ann, here are a couple of links www.newforestnpa.gov.uk/.../

What a surprise that was, Richard! Not the "habitat" I expected to see
On the Poole Harbour front, I've just come across the Stock Dove at the nest yesterday but I may have a cold coming on so am going to cosset myself before going further
EDIT - thought I'd better do it now, just in case ;)
