NotesThe Cape Weaver in my garden have been nesting since July. They have survived boomslang attacks and 4 days ago a Steppe Buzzard was trying to get into the nest too. These weavers are still building news nests and I am trying to make notes to see how long it takes a nest to be built. I will keep you posted if you like. The last couple of nests have been built on an old nest and I am waiting for one to fall to look inside. There are 3 of these double nests.
