Winter hasn’t quite withdrawn: last week was cold and blustery with rain showers. But the wagtail nesting site is well protected from the elements. The bay tree growing alongside has been swaying in the stiff wind gusts, while the pair take turns to sit on the eggs in the comfort of a stable foundation. The broad leaves of the aloe tree form protection from the driving rain. The clever little nest builders picked a perfect site. Two weeks have elapsed since they started sitting that means approximately a week to hatching time.
