Our Blue Tits are still active using our nest box 🙂
On the 3rd of May I saw a bird I had not seen in our garden before – it was a Goldfinch.
We have seen Goldfinches regularly since:
3 May – foraging at bottom of birch
4 May – two in leylandii’s next door, nesting??? and once in fur tree
5 May – one over the road foraging on front lawn
6 May – four foraging over the road 🙂 two in laylandii and one using our bird bath (not all at the same time)
I have ordered some nyjer seed to encourage them to visit our garden more.
Our swift box will be going up ASAP and hopefully we’ll see them nesting, if not in our garden, at a local old building where I saw them last year.
