They've been frantically nest building over the last couple of weeks and the nest now must be nearly complete. I had a look in the shed where they've decided to set up home and the nest is sat precariously on a wobbley board at the top of the shed so I hope it holds out.

In my last blog about our nest boxes I said that quite a few have been taken up by Great tits. I snapped this one coming out of a box after feeding it's chicks with what I think is a faecal sack in it's beak.
Also Stephen Carter sent me this beautiful pic of a Wood warblers nest in one of our local woodlands.
Steve is well on his way to a record breaking year in his nest finding quest. As you can see he finds a lot of natural nests as well as his many nest box colonies which he has scattered about on quite a few local farms. He has an excellent reputation with many local bird groups and wildlife organisations.
