Eggs, Pied Flycatchers and Cuckoo

As spring comes in, nesting has gone up a  notch. The Pied Flycatchers are back, apparently in good numbers and 5 nests have been started in my nest boxes. A total of 16 nests are now on the go, with 5 having eggs, mainly Blue Tits, but also a Sparrow. A first in any of my boxes. We have had a large number of sparrows around the front of the house for some years, nesting in the roof space. After some work blocking the roof off I put up 3 Sparrow Terrace boxes with 3 nests in each, and one is being used with 5 eggs so far. The Sparrows are around the barns with new sites it appears.
Heard the Cuckoo last weekend, always a relief. Found a Dunnock nest in the garden in a privet bush with 2 young in it.
A bit worried about Hedgie, didn't see him for a week, then 7am Wednesday morning there he is outside the back door, so close I almost fell over him. While I got some food he disappeared again, only to turn up 15 minutes later and happily ate his food.

So glad your bird boxes are a success, and relieved hedgie is ok. We had some beautiful green finches in the garden today and blue tits busy in and out of boxes. Blackbirds is nesting in the hedge near our cottage window so we can watch them going in and out. Just love spring.

Thanks that your bird boxes are safe with their eggs, heard the Cuckoo's safe is a great relieve for me. I am glad that they are taking care of their eggs even though they live in a terrace or in the roof of the house. Yes, I love spring and I want to watch the birds hatching their eggs in a nest. I have nothing to say just please take good care of your different kinds of birds.Take a picture of them and post it so we can see what condition are they in. As I can see in the pictures that you have posted on your blog, it is just an eggs and I am so excited to see their young ones and they chirp all together.

Olamendi’s Margaretta’s isn't only the pleasant and scrumptious one in the Dana Point but it's far one of the exceptional within the whole nation. One need to strive it immediately.
