Eggs are laid at Bath

Despite last years adult male not being seen for some months now, a pair are present at the nest box. A camera which is placed inside the box (not linked to the internet, but we are looking into this) is allowing us to check on the progress of the pair. A check on the pair on the 17th March resulted in the finding of 3 eggs. This pair have been laying 4 eggs over the recent years so it is hoped that a 4th egg was laid yesterday or this morning. The egg laying date is earlier than the last few years.
