More on the Blue Tits and A Heron Drops in!


Well they are definitely nesting in the box nearest the house. I watched them this morning taking all sorts of foliage and nesting material in. Of course I could not actually manage to get a photograph of them going in or going out. If you look closely on the photo above you can make one out on the feeder! Honest its there!




They seem to prefer our garden in the mornings. Mrs BW says they do not seem to be about much in the afternoons.


Just as I was giving up and going to get ready for work a Heron flew low over our house and settled on the house opposite. It stayed there for about five minutes before flying off. I have seem them fly over before but never actually settle. There were plenty of crows around but they seemed to ignore it.

WOW! And you managed to get a picture of it too! I bet that made your day. I never manage to get the camera back out in time to catch whatever neat bird I might have been lucky enough to spot.

Thank goodness it's finally spring, huh?!

Yes I was fairly pleased with myself! Pure chance but I guess thats how it is with most things.

Spring is finally here! The blue tits are really active in turning the nest box into a comfortable home. Its all very exciting. :)

You must really get some interesting Google search hits with phrases like "blue tits" on your blog. ;)

Good job getting the picture!

I suppose I must but how would I know? Is that a really stupid question?

I was pleased with the picture,it was touch and go as the battery was running out.
