BLUE TIT TAKING AN INTEREST IN THE NEW NEST BOX

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.
