Nest boxes in use.

At the start of April I put 5 new tit boxes up at a farm site in Coal Aston. Yesterday I got a text to say that there were eggs in 2, so I popped across to check and found this.

First eggs!

There were 2 clutches of 6 and 7 eggs. Another of the boxes had a lined nest, but no eggs, and the other 2 boxes were empty. Neither clutch was being incubated, so presumably there will be more eggs to come. I think 1 nest is Blue Tit and 1 is Great Tit. Nest Record cards will be started for the BTO's Nest Record Scheme.
