Interesting residents at The Walnut Tree

If I had a Euro for every time I think ‘Well, I haven’t ever seen (heard of) that before’, I would have enough cash for a return flight to Kefalonia in high season and plus a bit!


So this nest belongs to our little Black Cap mother who makes her nest in one of the rosemary bushes every spring.  The first time she appeared we felt like murderers because we didn’t know she was there.  We disturbed her (we call it gardening) and she abandoned the nest.  Since then we are very careful to discover where she is and AVOID, AVOID, AVOID – and warn any visitors to do the same.  So far we have been lucky and she has hatched and nurtured her brood to maturity.
