Nesting sunbird – update

I am afraid I have bad news for all those who were hoping to follow our little sunbird through incubating her eggs to fledging her family here at Lakeside.  Something, we think probably a local lizard, has been at the nest which we assume is now empty as we haven’t seen either parent bird for two days.  Hopefully they will try again soon.

As a consolation, here are a few pictures from last years successful nesting.
