Dandelion has looked a bit brighter today and hasn’t gone to the nest box at all. Freckles and Cinnamon both laid their egg.
Speckles sat in the nest box with a little heap of pine shavings on her back while Emerald kept her company.
Later they were back in the run and I checked the nest box. Still no egg. They must think they should be laying but it’s just not happening. It’s all a bit weird.
A few days ago we saw the first baby slow worm of the year in the same spot as last year.
It is good to know that they are still breeding in our garden.
At the end of the day Dandelion hadn’t visited the nest box or laid her egg (she used to lay it in the run sometimes) but she seemed a bit brighter so we will just have to wait to see how she goes.
