Bluetit Diary    Feb 2013 (3)



Monday 25th February 2013

With this dreadful weather, nothing much seems to be happening.

It is now nearly two weeks since we noticed the first piece of grass being brought into this box.  However, as you can see, subsequent progress has not been rapid!

Here the female is doing a nesting wriggle across the floor of Box2.

Box1 is still empty, though a pair of bluetits has taken ownership of it.

Well, at least the Fat Feeder is busy!  Here six long tailed tits are taking advantage of it.

As all regular readers of this diary will know, Elizabeth makes the fat blocks that go into this feeder.  If anyone is interested in the recipe, it is available on the BTO's e-newsletter.
