11 out of 24

Steve Carter was over yesterday morning to check our small nest box colony, he also found my pooping Pied wagtails nest which had 5 eggs but a quick check this morning revealed there are now 6.

here she is the layer of the eggs female Pied wagtail

Out of 24 nest boxes 11 had activity (building a nest) with a Redstart with 1 egg and either a Great or Blue with 2 eggs. That's not bad at all and the season is still young yet.
