Busy this week putting cameras in bird boxes (you might remember that I have placed them live online previously) - getting ready just in case we get lucky with nesting in the Spring - straight away can see that an enterprising blue tit is seeking refuge from the cold weather, in one or our boxes ! - every night around 4.30 pm it flies in and settles down in this box, fluffs up its feathers to conserve heat, and sleeps until the following dawn - lovely to see - CLICK ON THE BLUE TIT if you would like to see it (Just video, no sound at present)
I have put the bird feeder camera back online - you likely have lots of birds of your own - but if you want to watch birds at a feeder, in a tree in our garden, CLICK HERE!
