Nest box camera update 4

It is now four weeks since the blue tit started building the nest and it looks more or less complete.  She has been very busy this afternoon bringing in feathers and other soft stuff and rearranging things.

Last night she slept in the box for the first time.  I can't remember any of the previous birds doing that until all or all but one of the eggs were laid.

Sometimes the male follows the female into the box to feed her a spider but otherwise he leaves all the work to her.

I think it is probable that the first egg will be laid in the next few days.  Regular updates will appear on the "Nestbox camera 2015" page accessed via the tab above.
