BIRDS NESTING

Post by darrog » Wed Mar 17, 2010 3:53 pm

Still a little way of yet I suspect, but - Blue Tits are starting to take an interest in the bird boxes.

I'm sure that the Sparrows are not going to be too far away from staring soon.

There's a blackbird nesting in the hedge near the greenhouse. No doubt I'll be rescuing the offspring from the greenhouse before long!

Swifts/Swallows - not sure which but they have returned to the house opposite, looking for there old nesting site. I suppose they could be house martins ? - need to refer to my bird spotting book
