Finally got round to cleaning out the nest box used by the Great Tits last Spring. Cleared out the old nest, swept out, sprayed with bird table cleaner, ventilated, washed out with plain water, ventilated, camera lens cleaned and all then put back together:
All the time my works supervisor was keeping a close eye on things from the warmest spot:
I disconnected the camera which watches the outside of the hedgehog house so I could re-connect the nest box camera. I was going to disconnect the roosting pouch camera but the last couple of nights a wren was using the pouch again. So the available cameras for recording are now:
Now it's a wait and see game hoping a Great or Blue Tit will use the box as a roost now the nights are getting colder. Saturday night / Sunday morning got down to 5.6C
A mainly pictorial record of the wildlife and events in my part of Lincolnshire. My garden has two bird nest boxes and a Hedgehog house fitted with video cameras. There are several bird feeders and a large pond attracting a variety of wildlife to the garden.
Most of the pictures in the main part of my Jottings can be clicked on for larger views.
Many of my video clips are stored on my YouTube account.
