Nest Boxes

This has been the best year since installation in 2005, all ten were used.

Three boxes had eggs not hatched and the one in an old pear tree had three eggs, two smaller than the third, see photo, probably first tenant was a Great tit, which left one egg, the larger of the three, plus one dead young , and then followed by Blue tits which did not hatch the two smaller ones.

One other box is presently occupied by a bee colony, which have moved in after a Blue tit moved out.
