Nest Box Camera – LIVE

13 August – Update: You may have noticed that the last two eggs are no longer present in the nest. After four months, it was decided to remove them and send them to Sheffield University where they will have their DNA profiles analysed and added to a national database. They will also check for environmental and genetic factors of interest that may assist in future research or investigations.
