After a few days when the early morning temperature has been around 7˚C it was a bit of a shock to wake up to -3˚C. Fortunately once the Sun rose things began to improve. The clear overnight skies which caused the drop in temperature also gave many people, not this one unfortunately, a chance to see an Aurora over much of the country.
While I was monitoring the nature cameras today I happened to spot that both Great Tits came to investigate the camera nest box. The change over as one left and the other arrived is very fast. Don't blink or you will miss it:
Things are looking promising for a third year of nesting in the camera box.
