March 28th: Mrs Peckalot roosted tonight !
Only 4 short visits to the nestbox today, with not a great deal of floor pecking.
But the biggest surprise of all was at 7.15pm - when a bluetit decided to roost in the box - and it was Mrs Peckalot !
We couldn't believe what we saw though - see attached video clip for what happened (apologies for it being a bit dark) - Mrs Peckalot basically tells her partner to 'go roost somewhere else' and when he tries to re-enter the box she gives two sharp warning pecks ! poor bloke......is it not normal for bluetit pairs to roost together ?
