Nuthatches were harder to capture yesterday; possibly the recent spring weather has distracted them onto other tasks.
I am pleased that we have had a couple of substantial downpours; this will be crucial to the badger sow that may have delivered cubs in February. She will be lactating and needs as much food as she can get; the dry weather means worms are deep underground and this would make up 50% of her diet. If she can't get enough food the result would be that the cubs starve.
