I noticed a similar thing today - I had a poke around the gorse and broom bushes looking for linnets and yellowhammers but nothing yet at all. Found a couple of blackbirds pre-lay and visited an old site I remembered from my youth where the tawny owls used to nest and sure enough she was there, probably a few generations later than the old birds I used to know. The site is a long narrow crack in a tremendous old beech tree - pics up later.

Here's the tawny owl

 

She's really hard to see but whilst I was craning my neck for a better photo she took off so this is the best I could get of her, you can make out her back sitting tight.

 

And there's no way I could shin up there for a look at the clutch - I didn't manage it all those years ago either! It must be 40 foot up a smooth beech trunk . . .

Had a chap over today to take pics of hares and deer. I also managed to stumble across a few nests much to his delight. Got a few good images of hares chasing each other as well as deer in various poses...

Heres a few nests of today...
