April 1st: A New Beginning...and a new roosting !
Today saw 14 separate entries into the box by our new pair of bluetits, ranging from 7.14am up to 7.30pm. We have decided they need names, so think it is appropriate to name them after 'The Avengers', hence Steed and Mrs Peel!
Where Mrs Peckalot was obsessed with pecking the floor, Mrs Peel seems to have a slight obsession to peck the back wall in a certain place.
Mrs Peel brings in a bit more nesting stuff, in this case - moss. Now for a peck of this spot on the wall...
Look at this for a nesting wriggle!
We are pleased the board camera doesn't do too bad a job
Steed and Mrs Peel together. What do you think she is saying to him?
And finally...Mrs Peel puffed up to roost for the night
