The Birds are Back!

Wow! over a year since my last post – lots to catch up on, but first the main news is that both of our nest boxes have occupants.

Nest box 1 is in the back garden and has been taken by a pair of great tits.  Nest building started on 20th March with the first egg being laid on 3rd April.  We now have a clutch of 7 with no new egg this morning so I think incubation will start in earnest – how exciting!

… and nest box 2?  This was the box on 30 March

nest box 2

quite empty but lots has been happening in the last few days I’ll pop back later with an update
