Bluetit Diary    Apr 2013 (3)



Monday 8th April 2013

Suddenly a day later the nest appears to be finished - the floor is fully covered, a nest cup has been formed and is finished with a collection of downy feathers that Sally has found somewhere.

When really pushed, a tit can complete a nest from scratch in two or three days!  This happened in one of our boxes in 2005 when a desperate pair of great tits occupied Box1.  Their nest was completed from nothing in three days!
