Busy bluetits.

By

With the sun shining and hungry mouths to feed we re at our busiest.

Is the coast clear ?

Just time for a spot of housework

Then off..

Dont come home empty billed ..

Cant blame a guy for trying .

Well here goes nothing..

And she used to tell me size didnt matter ..

Hows this love ?

Just how many do we have now ? You sure they re all mine ?

Not even time for a quick peck..mind your head I ve got some making up to do !

Love this! Have only once made a nestbox for tits, and was thrilled when it was occupied within a fortnight of putting it out. I have all those comings and goings on VHS tape, and can relate to how much, and how large, they can cram into their beaks, with the little problem of getting it all through the "door". They made great "domestic staff", too, and kept our garden pest-free. ;-)
