The breeding season is upon us again and the Kingfishers have returned to the bank at Shugborough. With last year having been blighted by 2 nest burrows being destroyed by badgers, this year I’ve fortified the top of the bank with a large metal grid. The kingfishers started their burrow early March, but after I spent time placing the grid above the burrow, they then decided to move a few feet upstream, so I had to move the grid. Hopefully they’re settled now and I’m just hoping that this year they can have a better season and raise 2 or 3 broods.
