Nesting time at Titchwell

A lovely sign of Spring the other day. A pair of Long-tailed Tits working as a team to renovate a nest site in preparation for it to be used as a family home. Wedged between the fork of a tree, you can see one of them just peeping out. I think this is the female waiting for her husband (who's late) to hurry up with that nesting material.

And here he is now with some feathers to line the nest.

Passing them to the wife now, who'll no doubt do a better job than him of making it look nice.


A lovely pose for the camera, but off you go before you get shouted at.

  11. Good shots Adam. The nest looks so exposed to predators like that but I guess they started it early in the Spring and there still isn't much vegetation growth.
