Fat Lady Time in Savernake

I failed to see any males in the main territories in and around Savernake yesterday afternoon and suspect that the season may have ended there, somewhat suddenly as two males in reasonable condition were battling away in the best territory on Sunday 19th. 

Worse, initial searchings for ova & larvae on some of the most favoured trees have been decidedly disappointing.  I fear that the 'egg lay' there has been very low, which surprises me as the females have had a decent run of good laying days - more reasonable laying days than in the last two flight seasons together.  We shall find out...
