The Blue Tits nests have started hatching, and it's delightful watching the parents working their socks off feeding their young. Had six Pied Flycatcher nests with eggs laid, sadly one female was found dead on the single egg. The others are 7 or 6 in number and hopefully all is well with them. Hadn't hatched as of 22nd May. Only Blue Tits and Pied Flycatchers in my nest boxes this year. Lots of other birds very active around, a Redstart all around the barns, but haven't found a nest yet, also Grey Wagtails regularly seen, along with the more usual birds.
Been very busy in the garden, that time of year, plus trying to get the barns into shape and the surrounding land, so long days outside, and say it softly, but could do with a bit of rain.
