Nest Box Riddlesden.

Huge dissapointment and some sadness to find this morning all the chicks were dead in the nest.
Yesterday afternoon all was fine, both adults were feeding the young, there seem to be plenty of food judging by the activity at the nest. It seems the adults have simply abandoned the nest.This last clip shows yesterdays activity and this mornings discovery.
