I had a little action at my birdbox this morning. So far I haven’t seen anything beyond the odd bird standing on top and pooping… As they often do. So colour me shocked this morning when I looked out the window and saw something like this…
I genuinely couldn’t believe my eyes…
And to top it all my phone, which is what I usually use to take photos, had been discharging all night at work and I had it on the power cable that typically was very short. So I had to run and get the wife’s camera and hope it still had battery power. Then I had to get the monopod because with my shaky hands there was no way I could take a decent shot!
I only got two shots. The one above and this one.
Considering I was about 30ft away looking through a window I don’t think that is too bad a shot!
I’m fairly sure they are Great tits… Maybe Coal tits? I dunno. Unless it’s one of a very small group of birds then I have no idea what they are! >.<
Neither bird actually went INTO the box, but they did go away and come back together a few times while I watched… So I’m guessing they are a mating pair? Anyway, it’s good to see my birdbox getting some attention.
This is the back of my garden. You can see how a small piece of carpet tacks would work quite well. No chance of humans getting hurt.
