Starling Nest 2016 - First Egg

I just had a quick (20 second) check in the Starling nestbox on the side of my house to see what, if anything, was happening with this year's nest, and guess what..... yes, the first egg of 2016!

First egg of 2016

Compared to last year, this year's nest is approximately 1 week earlier, so, if everything goes to plan, and the birds manage to lay another clutch of  5, there should be chicks by the end of April (compared to 2nd May in 2015).

I'll put the details into the BTO's Nestbox Challenge website, and keep the blog updated with the developments.
