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.
