I've just emailed David to see if he knows if the box is gong to be cleaned out this year it's starting to bug me now, it doesn't look healthy to me.
Wakefield have cleaned theirs out this year.

In reply to Alan.:
Certainly pretty manky now & they do still visit for a root around!
Not good at Derby either but they often bring prey back to eat in scrape & not usually cleaned up until next season!

I wonder who this is

Mr P & one of the juvies?
Caught sight of a Peregrine on nestbox roof around seven this evening ...
Looks like someone we know well?
Is nest box roof a popular sunbathing spot? This scenario over a long time this afternoon ... saw first bird @ 13.02 & let recording run, glad I did to get this action ...
Brill Wendy, what a lovely sequence, love how you caught him? coming back up to Perch and then Mrs dropping down.
I did spot him on perch this morning but could not post Doh!!
Oooh no ... the ghouls are out & about ...
Chol:) love it....
