  • 16;50

  • 18.50 ... makes me wonder if frozen pic?  Have refreshed several times & still get this

  • No pic unfortunately but did go back & saw it preening & now has gone although never saw it leave!

  • 19;50

    @Wendy the freezing and whirly wheel is soooooo annoying, as you say you refresh but unless it moves, tis a guess.

    How on earth Sandra copes beats me xxxx CHOL:):)

  • Thanks Kate and Wendy.

    20:45 One on the back beam. There are children's voices outside the barn but the BO isn't bothered by them

    20:49 She made an appearance on the middle beam and came into the box rasping at 20:51. Male joined her  - lots of loud screeching and mutual preening

    Male nearest the cam, female preening his head

    Some aggressive encouragement from the female


    21:08 Mating then he left the box, she followed him to the tray a couple of minutes later

    She is giving the occasional rasp.

    21:24 He left the barn

    21:30 Preening

    21:35 She left the barn (sorry for the blur!)

    23:30 EN/EB and silent in and around the barn. Goodnight

  • That's great Sandra!

  • Yep, finally!

  • Just logged in & saw something white fly from box to the right & disappear, so fast, can't say if Owl or Moth?

  • I missed it Wendy as I had shut down the tabs on my computer.

    Just noticed the latest Nescam Diary update. I think Matt will be posting another one tomorrow after this evening's occurrence! Goodnight.

    June 2018

    14th – for the first time in what seems to be an age there is a pair roosting together in the barn during daylight hours this morning.

     

  • I do hope it's the start of a meaningful relationship! Lol

  • Morning Both

    Great stuff there Sandra, as Wendy says fingers crossed...

    06;20 back on the tray other still in box

  • Good morning Kate and Wendy

    Great to see them back again this morning. She is rasping in the box.

  • A  few mins ago she was in box and then gone, and barn cam still frozen, but then scapped her over on the beam and him on the Tray.

    07.28

    she comes to front beam and he moves further over on tray.

  • Hi you two ... looking goid!

  • Morning Wendy ( hey you make sure you have a cat nap during the day CHOL:):)
