Tingleywatch chick update

Even though our camera box is not in use anymore, that’s not to say there isn’t any new life in the garden! The front bird box on the Copper Beech (pictured) is the home of a Great Tit family, and though obviously we’ve not seen them, the chicks are very vocal! The blue tit who was in the camera box but now in the terrace further along the garage, seems to be sitting on eggs. We have observed two blue tits taking it...

Blue tit moves, chaffinches and crèches

It seems confirmed that the blue tit that was once resident in our camera nestbox has moved. She has been spotted twice over the weekend going into the middle of the three sparrowboxes (pictured) and I assume has made her nest in there, we’ll have to watch out for little chicks.

Following this I’ve a feeling she’s moved in to a box a little further down!This is purely speculation, but...

We have residents!!!

Very excited today when I checked the webcam in our nest box. At last, after observing a few birds sticking their heads in to case the joint, it looks like some little birdy has taken up residence!! Keep checking by selecting Tingleywatch from the menu on the left. I’ll post screenshots when I can of visitors. The camera will only be off-air if for some reason the server decides it’s going to restart itself, and I’ve...
