Plenty of nests and eggs

Lovely weather has started lots of activity in the nest boxes. Checked my 29 nest boxes and 21 have some form of use.
11 have eggs, 7 Blue tits, 2 Pied Flycatcher, a Great Tit and Pied Wagtail.
Two nests have sitters so complete. First sign today of the Pied Flycatchers blue eggs with 1 and 2 laid in  2 nests.
A couple of nests seem to have had nothing added in the last few days, others have what seem complete nests constructed in a week, and a couple of  others started in the last two days.
 Could be a record number of nests for me, although it must be admitted there are more boxes than before.
In the heat of the weekend spent a little time sat down in the woodland garden, seeing two dippers regularly and also treecreepers. A pair of Blue Tits looked into two nest boxes there, but no nest building yet.
Only slight disappointment so far is only one sighting of a Redstart so far this year. Had a Redstart nest over the past few years, and I see last year they didn't start building until 14th May, so still hope.
