It’s not a race …or is it?

In the quiet village of Newstead the healthy rivalry between the ‘west bank’ and the ‘east bank’ continues …

Our local Tawny Frogmouths have been sitting on eggs throughout October and the first chicks have now appeared.

Two well-known local pairs have hatched at least one youngster, both are growing steadily.

Perhaps the ‘west bank’ is slightly in front at present, but stay tuned for the final result.

    How I wish I was able to be back home for this season.
    T F’s are such treasures of the natural world.
    Looking forward the hearing updates from the east and west banks.
    And thank you.

  2. Lovely birds!
