nesting time




the birds in our back garden are going about the business of nest building, i've been on leave for the last few days which has given me time to catch up with what has been going on in the garden, first of all (panic stations) the camera in the blue tit box has packed in, sent it back to HANDYKAM for testing, hopefully have it back in the next few days, been watching the blackbirds and they are building 3 different nests, is this normal?, the robin has decided to nest in somebody else's garden this year (for the first brood anyway), he keeps coming back to ours for the mealworms, have taken a few photos today, hope you like them.

still no bluetit

wasn't in the box last night and when i looked in the garden this morning only one bluetit was on the feeders where normally you would see two, fear the worst but that's nature, hopefully it will find a new mate and with a bit of luck rear their young in the box.

no blue tit

put the camera on tonight and the bluetit wasn't there, it's the first time that it hasn't been in the box at night since november, hope that nothing has happened to it, maybe it has found better lodgings,
