Spring is coming(April 07, 2010)
The bluetits are nesting in boxes around the farm and gardens. The entry holes in the new nesting boxes are a tight squeeze for them - maybe we fed them too well during the winter, but they are enjoying 'hoovered wool' from a new carpet to help make their nests. This fine wool was removed from the hoover and fixed to an old bird table for them to use. The clever ones now have designer penthouses.
its all looking hopeful...
