Brand New Nesting Box Seeking Suitable Tenant

Just checking all is clearThe current excitement in our world if not yet  in the birds’ world, is a brand new nesting box, complete with wi-fi camera, recently bought from the RSPB shop at Carsington. We’ve been promising ourselves one ever since we had so much interest and enjoyment last year watching the blue tits in our (camera-less) nesting box under under the plum tree.We’re a bit late in the season, as the first batch are all happily nesting already but we are hoping that perhaps we may catch the attention of a second lot although deep down we know it will probably not be until next year at the earliest.

Whilst we know this, there is still the wild hope that one day soon  we will turn on the  television and find we are looking at a nest; at present we stare into a bright and horribly pristine wooden box. with absolutely nothing in it at all. The new box is up on the shed wall opposite the house and visible from both barns.  Only a few feet away from the brand new box a pair of blue tits is very happily nesting in a hole in the wall,  which is probably far cosier and certainly more private. John captured some shots of them yesterday, three of which are here.  You can see these and many more on our Photo Gallery.dsc06473Quite pleased with his little home in the wall
