Nest building in progress


Spring in in the air, I spotted a Great tit today removing the moss from the lawn for me

It then flew off to a hole in the wall i’ve been meaning to fill

2 jobs off the to do list :-0))

Your intuition (and not procrastination) must have been in high gear....knowing the tit would need just that space :)

I don't have any of that species of bird here to my knowledge but the wood pigeons (at least 2 pairs) and I think a blackbird or robin have returned to the large hawthorn bush that is at the back of the garden. I think they must use last year's nests as I've not seen them gathering anything for nestbuilding but they clearly go in there regularly to roost.

I hope you get to see the fledglings and that the nest will be safe from predators.

That's a wonderful set of pics ... I love the way they choose where to build a nest ... sadly I think the Bluetits have vacated the birdbox in our garden. : o (((

Lovely set of pics, we have lots of tits here but at the moment they are using pampas grass and the feathered seed heads from my clematis, I`d appreciate it if they were to take the moss from my lawn first,lol.....

Great birdwatching Plantaholic.
Lincslass, perhaps you should have put up a notice "Lawn moss free, collection only!"
