This morning at 6.22 a.m. a great tit, in Nest Box 5, revealed why she had been restless for an hour, instead of tucking her head underneath the soft, fluffy feathers that usually form a cloak-like shawl below her neck. As she stood up, ready to leave her bed, she revealed an egg. This is the first one to appear in the five nest boxes that include a video recorder. Two of the other boxes also contain nest material, but Box 5 was most recently filled by a pair who had looked inside and the checked it out regularly. This box is positioned on the brick area of the sun-room's bay window, just to the left of the south-facing entrance with the steps. For many years blue tits have nested in an old box in this position, so it seemed sensible to try a new one this year that was designed by gardenature to house a camera. This pair have not been named yet, so I would welcome any suggestions that you have. I shall leave this camera on the live streaming channel over night for a while in case you wish to see what happens next. I'm sorry that it is only in black and white. As soon as funds become available, I will update it to colour.
