Today we were delighted to find that our next box is back in use! A blue tit has nested again and has, we think, been laying eggs this very morning. This is very exciting news, especially as we’d thought the box wouldn’t be in use this year due to a lack of activity until now.
Our new arrival means that we will restart attempts to live stream the nest box video to the website. (Our April Fool wasn’t entirely fictional – it HAS been problematic!) We’ll update you with news about that on Friday. In the mean time the nest box is on view in the school entrance hall where the children can see it during the day, and here’s a still photo of our new guest.
