In reply to Gardenbirder:
Thank you for the moth research, WENDY - needless to say I shan't remember those names
GARDENBIRDER, thank you for putting me back in line - I was being a drama queen
Late afternoon/early evening there was rain and thunder - just for the record ;)

In reply to scylla:
The Jackdaws investigated early in the morning - first, I think, a young one:
Then a baleful adult
Lot to learn
In reply to gaynorsl:
Dad (I think) came calling very early this morning in the wind and rain - he looked quite worried
A Jackdaw turned up at its usual hole just before 06:30 but no other birds early on...
...in fact, no other birds seen all day up to 20:26.
It appeared to rain all day and evening, and a rather bedraggled male turned up @ 21:07, once again calling - is he looking for the female and has something happened to her? Just speculating here ;)
Calling into the cavity on arrival:
I never spotted any Jackdaws since that early-morning one up to 00:57 - but it was not an easy ride, what with raindrops and smudges.
Mouse appeared in the early hours, this is rough cut and brightened - almost NO MOTHS seen overnight:
MrK was here at noon calling for his family. I cut it down roughly but didn't do the sound, sorry but am sniffly and v tired so probably have you-know-what and am at death's door *drama queen*
Rain, rain, rain.
gaynorsl said:Do they stick together usually? if so doesn't bode well.
Yes, a couple usually stays together for years, Gaynor, barring "accidents" :)
MrsK made up for her absence yesterday, with several visits from late afternoon onwards, she tested the cavity and is staying the night on her fave resting place on the ledge.
No time/energy for pretty portraits, tho she does deserve at least one :'(
