Linacre 5th June 2011 - Empty nestboxes and a new breeding record.

I popped down to Linacre this afternoon to check the nestboxes for a last time. All the boxes, bar 2, were empty meaning all of this year's young have now successfully fledged!! The 2 remaining boxes, 1 Blue Tit and 1 Great Tit, had fully feathered young in them and they should fledge within the next few days. I'll post a full break down of the facts and figures of this year's breeding season later in the week.

As well as these birds I also managed to see 3 recently fledged Nuthatches- our first actual proof of breeding and another record for the Bird Atlas.
