Regular readers will know that our 'owl' nestbox has, over the years, proven attractive to everything apart from Barn Owls (Although one sat near it the other night!)
This morning at first light one of the males of the two pairs of Stock Doves that have been prospecting arrived to find a pair of Jackdaws in residence. Now I tend to think of Stock Doves as being gentle creatures like Turtles: but no! He was in the box in seconds, shoving the Jackdaws out and driving them off! The Doves have been in or on the box all day now!
