Nestbox update- Coal Aston

I popped down to our new ringing site in Coal Aston this morning to check on the progress of the nestboxes that we put up this year. Last time I checked, there were 2 boxes with eggs in (see here), and today there were 3!

1 box had a Blue Tit sitting tight, 1 had a Great Tit sitting tight, and the other had 10 warm eggs in it.

10 eggs

Great Tit

The site where these boxes are has horses on it, and all 3 nests contain alot of horse hair. BTO nest record cards have been set up for these nests.
