March 9th: Damp..a few more visits..and first crouching behaviour witnessed
A pretty damp day but thankfully more visits than yesterday!
There was 6 morning visits, 2 of them were inside the box.
Today for the first time we witnessed the 'crouching behaviour' of the male, this is where the male goes in the box and crouches or squashes himself into a corner before the female comes in. However, the female just sat on the entrance hole and peered in, but did not enter. Maybe tomorrow ?
