In reply to Nigel O:
I looked out for him regularly during the storm Nige but no sightings, have an excellent view of this nest hole from one of my bay windows during inclement weather but feel sure that Mr K has somewhere more sheltered to use, maybe an old shed somewhere nearby! The nest hole is very shallow & the dog-leg to the right doesn't extend very far so maybe is quite exposed in a South-easterly blow! So saying, it regularly housed four chicks each year up until 2013 with only the one youngster falling to it's death in that final year (which is buried in my garden)!

Felt sorry for him, not his kind of weather but his eyes were so twinkly today
Bit of birdsong at beginning but shows how windy it was ... caught cam on tripod & knocked view down a bit, nearly missed his trademark poo before fly-off! Lol
Poor Mr K, he indeed nearly cowped ( as would be said up here) and did he really have to have his trademark poo, right in our faces!! When you watch him, you would almost think he was watching you watching him, and asking " do you have my best side"!
