The bluetits have flown ...

Following the departure of the bluetit babies I opened the nestbox.
It was packed with wonderful nesting material ... moss, grass, fleece and feathers.

I removed the contents to prevent parasites settling in.
Now I will leave it to dry out for a while ... with all the recent rain it was quite damp inside!


You get a better look at the nesting material here. Looks nice and snug, doesn't it?

how wonderful to have blue-tits nesting in your box .. I like the blurring blue-tit departing photo, too!
