This year we saw activity again and kept out fingers crossed and with great excitement this week we switched the camera on to see several pieces of moss had been brought in. The last 2 days they've been really busy and tonight I switched on the camera again and this is what I saw....
|Nest Box Cam|
I always assumed that they built the nest in layers, so covered the base and worked up. This obviously isn't the case from what we can see here.
I have watched Springwatch for many years and you never see these kind of images as they always time it so the Blue Tits have eggs and are feeding chicks, which I understand because that is what viewers want to see but I'm fascinating to see this building process and finally find out what is happening when these cute little birds disappear into the box!
