    Been keeping an eye on the blue tit nest in the box on the shed, and up until today, we've only seen a fluffy nest. Today they have revealed 6 little eggs. Fingers crossed all goes well - I'll keep you posted.

    No sign of anything in our bird nests this year. I guess it' still early up here.

    Well there's NINE eggs this morning - this is the most we've ever had.

    How lovely !

    The flycatchers are back here, and looking to nest in the climbing hydrangea that grows up my house. I was amazed to see a baby thrush last week and fully feathered hopping round after a parent being fed his worms. I don't know how they've managed to do it given the cold spells that came after they all started nesting, but they have!
