Have just this minute seen a blue tit taking an interest in the nest box we put up a few days ago.
It half entered the box then flew off.
Now I have seen a sparrow taking an interest in the same bird box.
Perhaps next year I should put up some nest boxes with smaller holes. Perhaps.
We may get all 5 nest boxes being used this year.
The roof felt has come away from the flat porch roof and some sparrows have build a nest inside. They perch on the spouting and seem at home hopping in and out of the roof space. Instead of a neat porch roof we have twigs and old grass coming through the gap. I think nature is taking over round here.
It is certainly the nesting season. The memories of the long hard winter will soon be long gone.
