First off , the bird data for yesterday ( slightly dodgy data set as I spent all day in the garden working so the birds had to feed around me!)
For the first time I noticed that the Blue Tit is now becoming aggressive to other birds feeding around the nestbox – sure sign that it will become home to another Blue Tit family this year.
I spent most of yesterday sorting out the planting around the Dovecote, to try and make it a patch of woodland. I used the excess of crocus and grape hyacinth we have in the front garden. More plants make the area look more natural and will provide more insects.
