Only the colony isn't there this year! They were there at the start of the season in May: during one of the CAC's earlier projects at Jetty Woods, there were plenty of occupied nests and double-crests and courtship displays etc. A couple weeks later from Stewart Park, all but two of the nests seemed abandoned. Shortly after that, none of the nests were occupied. Has anyone been observing regularly or keeping tabs, and therefore have any idea of what might have happened?
