Nest box camera update 6 - Sitting tight

There were five eggs by last Sunday and that turned out to be all there would be.  A smaller clutch than average in recent years, perhaps partly as a result of the cold weather.  The female has been brooding the eggs most of the time and they will probably hatch next weekend.

The male bird is regularly bringing food to the female - spiders, caterpillars and flies - although she usually prefers to eat it outside.
