Fingers crossed, ladies, not a great pic as I couldn't get any closer, for obvious reasons! : o ))

I have noticed the blackbirds getting very vocal and fighting for what would seem nesting space (or maybe courtship?) today. No blue tits here that I've seen...I do hope you get some little ones, Shirley. Sure is looking that way with all the nesting activity going on in your bird box. :)

Great babies on the way soon.

Looks very promising Shirley,especially as they are nest building..lovely..We haven't seen any activity in ours this year,which is disappointing after last year..and that was the first time they nested in the box,which has been up a few years now..maybe someone else has a more upmarket one....

I've been tempted to put up boxes, but my cats are to good at bid catching - I would love to have birds nesting. I was in aldi the other day and they had a bird box with a biult in camera +30m of cable. It was very reasonably priced as well.

W'lass, I find myself looking at the box whenever I get a chance! Funniest sight was when a Robin stood on the top of it for a while, not surprisingly the Bluetits stayed away until he'd gone. : o )
...... Clarice, I'd love to get pics of their babies. ......
Sandra, you never know, they may be late starters! ....
Kf, that sounds a bargain at Aldi. I'd have been tempted to buy one!

I think the box and camera at Aldi (10 days ago) was £49 I've seen them advertised £80+ elsewhere. So with the cat problem I purchased a strawberry hanging basket kit instead -again seemed good value. they do have some good stuff in there from time to time.

Kf, the strawbery kit sounds lovely. I've no idea where our closest Aldi store is! .......

Amy, do you have many birdboxes? We have two, one I thought was taken up last week, not seen any activity in that one since, but definitely have Bluetits in this one, as you can see! Just love having them in our garden. : o ))

It certainly is, San, we have some 'regulars' since I moved the feeder to the back of the garden. A Blackbird, a pair of Robins, a Dunnock and a pair of Collared Doves. Haven't seen Sid Squirrel for a week though.
