Nesting season update

Back on 13th January we mentioned the Robin nest-building that was reported by Paul Bayliss. We've just heard that the Robin now has four eggs. Here at the Nunnery we have Long-tailed Tits busy nest-building and lots of birds singing, so things are starting to happen.

With the first returning migrants also reported this weekend (Sand Martins) we can expect things to continue apace, especially if the weather remains this mild. Don't forget that you can record nesting attempts in your own garden through the BTO Nest Box Challenge and you can follow the progress of returning migrants on our migration blog.
