January 22nd: Welcome to 2010
NestBox News
Once again, our BlueTit nestbox this year remains completely unchanged, no new cameras or electronic devices. The camera has been left in the box, even over the heavy winter we have just had, and hopefully will be unaffected.
Last year was the worst ever, we had no interest in the nestbox at all really.
For the first time ever at this time of year, we have got a roosting blue tit, perhaps a male because it doesn't appear to be cleaning up after itself. Look at all the droppings ! Usually the only time we have roosting is when the nestcup is completed, and the female is getting ready a few days before she starts laying eggs.
We seem to have an established pair, and both bluetits want to roost the night, but one of them is not happy about it. Possibly the other one roosts in a nearby Wagtail box a few metres away, but that doesn't have a camera so I can't confirm it.
