We have a blue tit who is regularly roosting in our box overnight now… and any “in and out” activity is usually in the mornings. No signs yet of nesting material, but they definitely know the box is there…. here’s hoping! We have fat balls and feeders situated next to the box too.

What nesting materials do we need to have around? From the bird box club @grovelands.com

We have activity in our box with two two bluetits, but usually in the mornings… not sure if this is indicative of their usual behaviour. We have put a small amount of straw in the nestbox as suggested in the literature that came with the equipment… is this right? Because it seems that the birds may be taking the straw OUT of the nestbox…. perhaps elsewhere,. which we don’t want obviously. Does anyone have any experience with this – we are wondering if we should take the straw out to encourage them to bring nesting material in.

Our bird box is “live” to the nation and we have been watching two blue tits checking out the accommodation today ! The staff and children are already excited… what will we be like when we have chicks to watch?!
