Woke up as usual at about six this morning to be greeted by rivers of rain running down the outside of the bedroom window. We both put on our waterproofs and went for a short walk. Not just rain, about 70/30 rain with snow mixed in.
Yesterday Mrs Great Tit spent a while on and off in her nest, each time carefully tucking nest material under her as though she was sitting on eggs though I couldn't see any even when she left the nest. Once I spotted the male bring some food for her:
This morning as she moved around the nest I could see one, maybe two, eggs which she covers up when she leaves the nest. This will continue until she had laid her full quota.
I hope the weather will have settled by the time there are hatchlings to feed.
