Easter Egg!

Sorry, I know it's very corny, but I couldn't resist, because I've just found my first Starling egg in the box on the side of my house!

Starling egg

According to my book, A Field Guide to Monitoring Nests, from the BTO, Starlings lay a clutch of, on average 4-5 eggs, with 1 laid daily, so hopefully by the end of the week, our bird should be sat on a full clutch.

The data has already been added to the Nestbox Challenge website.
