I think it may be that they'll peep out in a while .... maybe they're not convinced that spring's coming yet

I think there was something that made a sort of small partition between where the nests were, and an old coat hanging up between them, but they had to fly in and out of the same doorway!

It looks like a Sankey Growarm 300 as it has two vents.  It appears that you're not the only one without an instruction leaflet

Hedging and Horses

Posted: 08/02/2014 at 13:59

Our  horses, ponies and cattle (and even our goats) left holly uneaten along the hedgerows - although I do understand that New Forest ponies, with their bristly muzzles, will browse on gorse so maybe they'd eat holly.  

Of course, some hollies don't have prickles - they'd probably eat that as would deer, sheep and anything else.
