Bluetit Diary    Feb 2013 (2)



Saturday 9th February 2013

Although we have been getting quite a few visitors to our nest boxes, and even some which have turned into pair swapping events, so far none of our birds has brought any nesting material into a box - until today!

As far as I am concerned, although what has been brought in is small, this bird has brought nesting material into Box2.

She's dropped it on the floor as usual.

An hour later it is still there.  Is this the start of nest building?

Although it would be early, it would not be exceptionally so.  (See the Overview for the facts!)  However, I don't think just this one small piece of grass by itself would qualify as being the start of nest building in this box.

As usual, we will have to wait and see what happens.
