My initial attempt failed as my image plus Matthew's blew the attachment size limit.  So I try again.

I have been emulating the Owlet nightjar next to our stove!  Much more pleasant than being outside where themain excitement was an active Little Raven nest.

A bird was occasionally ​visible within the nest (about 25m high in an elm) and vocalised constantly for at least 20 minutes.  I couldn't work out if the nest was still being built or if the bird was attending to eggs or young.
