This box is on the front of the house – a north facing wall tucked up under the eaves. On 7th April we noticed some interest in the box so turned on the camera to find:
..the start of a nest. This blue tit has been very busy as in just 3 days the nest is nearly finished! She is now bringing in feathers and some fleece. She also fought of a trespasser yesterday. This box has been empty since we put it up 3 years ago, it is a “side ways” design with the entrance hole at the top right-hand side of the picture. Unfortunately some grass is in front of the camera lens at the moment, I am hoping this will move over time. Here she is today.
