    Nice. Hopefully you won't have what happened last year at the Lancashire Schools' ICT Centre where the box I had setup got a pair of blue tits and a successfully hatch clutch of eggs, but after a week or so it was packed into by a woodpecker which ate the chicks. Live. On camera. On streaming video.

    As soon as I noticed the thing being attacked I pulled the plug as I pushed the feed over to our signage in the Dining Room......

    No, different Blue Tit - the one that was attacked recovered then deserted the nest - a few days later another couple moved in. Didn't pay any stamp duty though......

    I spent this morning giggling at baby great tits trying to land on the seed feeder outside my kitchen window. They weren't particularly good at steering and crashed into it rather than landing! The wood pigeons were enjoying the seed scattered on the floor by them!
