Having a visit from our totally qualified and certified bird handler today we were able to take a peep at the content of some of our nestboxes. Blue Tit and Flycatcher chicks:
The Flycatcher continues to be a bold and fascinating presence on the plot
Today he was witnessed exhibiting an interesting behaviour – peeping into Blue Tit nests
There is research on this – it is thought that is a migrant incomer he has not quite got his finger on the pulse of current gossip: state of food supplies, recent temperatures, and inspects other nests to see if it might be time to lay some eggs.
