Starlings return.

Following a false start in early April and the subsequent failure of the nest I've been really pleased to see the return of the Starling pair to the nestbox on the side of the house this week. The male bird has been singing, wing flapping on the roof and bringing in lots more nesting material to the box. I had a quick peep in today and grabbed this photo.


Sorry about the quality of the picture, but I didn't want to disturb her. Hopefully with the weather set to improve this week she may continue to brood and raise a healthy brood. Good luck! The news has been entered into the BTO's Nestbox Challenge.
