Notes25 nests in the Willow tree, breeding in the garden for the second year. Unusually busy this year. Last year they left a lot of old nests and just kept building new ones. This year they are breaking down and building new ones immediately when the young leave the nests. Also, last year there seemed to be only 2 males. This year there seems to be more
