Nest Box 2

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.
