No time to recover from the gruelling Cumbria trip, as I was out again straight away! This time myself, Steve and John Brown went to visit some more of Jimmy's various nest boxes scattered around the county. We targetted two totally contrasting species, Tree Sparrows and Kestrels! As nice as the Tree Sparrows were the highlight was easily the Kestrel chicks. We checked two different nest boxes and both had a healthy brood of chicks. While we were travelling we popped into Black Plantation where I saw my first Tree Pipit of the year and a couple of lovely male Redstarts.
