It's wilder than you might think.

Take a closer look at this picture of our tractor engine and you will see the rather questionable location that a pair of pied wagtails down at Kelton Mains decided to build their nest. Luckily ranger Dave's super sharp hearing located them and the tractor will remain out of use until the chicks have fledged.

  1. Along with the pied wagtail nest we also have swallows nesting in the countryside centre interpretation room, great tits nesting in the wall outside the offices, and blue tits nesting behind the guttering of the visitor centre. Nice to see the birds using their imaginations.
