NotesWith one female cape weaver having accepted one of the nests, she has been pursued no-stop by the male weaver who's nest she has chosen. I have attached a few pics of him mating with her ( 30 August 2012) and his attempts too! I have put red dots on the nests to make it easier to identify the nests.
