Last Nest Box Check of the Season
Gail and I made our last visit to our boxes in the Hodder Valley on Sunday morning and it was more of a treat for her than usual, as after 23 years of 'living over the brush' Gail and I got married on Saturday. So as a special honeymoon treat she was able to assist with the ringing of 24 Pied Flycatcher chicks. I bet there's not many ladies who can say that on the day after their wedding they were checking Pied Flycatcher boxes or any other nest boxes at all probably!
