Presumably the young are a few weeks old now and hopefully well feathered. Also now that the trees are in full leaf the nest may be nice and sheltered.
You might get an amazing surprise in a week or so with Crow turning up with his family in tow. :fc:

Update:
Sadly, Crow never appeared with a family in tow, and gradually he stopped taking food to the nest.  We think the young were probably taken by predators while he was out foraging.


Happily, Crow has now appeared with a new Mrs Crow, showing her the ropes of the best places to pinch hen and sheep food, sitting in the same tall tree he and Hoody used as their lookout, and collecting worms and larvae from the same pastures.  So just perhaps they will breed together and we will get a family this year  :hshoe:   :yippee:

Well I guess that's the way of the wild. :thinking:
But I'm so glad crow has got a new mate so he can rebuild his life.
I just think crows are such amazing birds. I used to get so much pleasure from mine.
