Blue Tit update II

Two blogs in a day seems excessive, but I thought it was time to bring you up-to-date with the happenings in the nestbox.

The female has been busy filling the box with moss and the nest is now almost two-thirds built. The 'nestbox shuffle' is working overtime now, creating a good solid central cup, even though you can't see it here!


Whilst we're still a way off eggs yet, there are already reports of birds laying as far north as Merseyside. In fact, logging on to the results pages at 'Nest Box Challenge' also shows the pattern, with the first blue markers showing those nests with eggs by yesterday.
