 Here’s a detailed explanation of the different cams and wildlife you can see, in Robert’s own words:

Look out for the male and female tawny owls in and around Ash Tree, Bonnie and Ozzie. Their nearby nest failed earlier this year, sadly a grey squirrel ate through the bottom of their wild nest. Amazingly, she laid again on 28/04 and then again on the 01/05, this is absolutely fantastic as tawny owls usually only lay one clutch a year. The female incubates these eggs for 30 days, so hopefully the first egg should hatch around the 30/05.

I am extremely excited to announce that the male and female kestrel from Ash Wood now have FIVE eggs in Ash Hollow. These were laid on the 15/05, 18/05, 20/05, 22/05 and 24/05. I wonder if she will equal Mrs Kes’ 6 eggs? Let’s wait and see! Kestrel eggs are laid 2-3 days apart so we can expect another around Satuday/Sunday time 22 or 23/05). It is important to note that kestrels don’t really start incubation until the 3rd or 4th egg, so don’t worry that they are being left alone.

On the stream you can see the AW Little Owl Nest, a nest I built and put up at Ash Wood in early March. It only took a couple of days before the resident little owls were busy inspecting the nest, and popping into the nest cavity for a look around and even a nest scrape or two soon after. They unfortunately haven’t nested here this year but you can sometimes catch a fleeting visit, so keep your eyes peeled! Another nest that can be seen on this stream is the Three Trees Nest, a nest I made and put up at Ash Wood. This was intended for the kestrels that I have frequently seen flying around Ash Wood and the surrounding area, but was desirable for many species, barn owls, little owls and kestrels all tried their best to keep this nest.

In the end the female barn owl you can see in their now was the victor, whilst the young male kestrel was away finding a mate, she claimed Three Trees as hers. This female has a ring on, and after some research I managed to work out that she was one of the rescued owls that I placed into Elm to create the super brood of 8 barn owl chicks back in 2017. You can also see AW Ash Feeding Branch, somewhere that I place roadkill to attract species such as buzzards and tawny owls (NOT Luna and Bomber – another pair. How exciting! This branch is often visited at night, so keep an eye out when the sun goes down as the action is far from over.

When setting up cameras I undertook a very ambitious project in the Pond. I constructed a pond in Ash Wood which has attracted a plethora of different species, including badgers, sparrowhawks and many more. Keep an eye out for bathing birds and thirsty animals. Ash Wood was an incredibly ambitious project I started back in Autumn 2020 burying hundreds of meters of cables, installing many cameras, and building nest boxes, ponds, and feeding posts. I am so happy with how responsive the wildlife has been to it and I can only imagine the wonderful footage I am going to get from there.
