Happy New Year everyone!
Great start with lovely captures of our pair ... but mighty strange about that 'third' one ... maybe a late 'first footer' Lol!
Good to have some colour Scylla, hope you are continuing to improve!
Gales seem to be a bit of a fixture just lately, another blow overnight promised here, stay safe all!
20:07 From being what I thought was an empty barn, she landed on the tray and then left
20:42 One on the back beam
20:58 One on the back beam
To the box and then left the barn
21:00 Back in, onto the middle beam
To the ledge
Onto the box again
21:01 A quick look and then left the barn
There has been no rasping
21:21 Now there is, very close to the barn, 4 or 5 long rasps. A brief lull and then the calls started again.
21:23 It came in onto the tray, then on top of the box and then flew to the back of the barn, out of view.
21:26 On the back beam, calling
21:40 After preening, went to the top of the box and then flew out. Still rasping
22:30 Still nearby and continuing to call
23:12 I thought there may have been a food delivery outside (quick, excited rasps from the juvenile) but it hasn't come into the barn and is continuing to give its usual call.
23:20 Two juveniles food begging now. The one I've been hearing throughout this evening has been the male (higher tone) in comparison to the female's lower tone
23:25 Both are very close to the barn, possibly at the exit. Goodnight

I keep forgetting! I'm not competent with Twitter so I'll have to put it on Facebook.
But I'm not competent with Facebook either... :'(
See ya, girls and Ian ;)
I shall look in as much as possible too, if I manage any vid footage it will be on my Twitter feed! Goodnight
