2 Blue Tits, Hogs and Earth Hour

casino italiana tschechische republik teilen freunden dokumentation The blue tits have started to build their nest in the normal nest box. But, this year something a bit different has happened. They always build in the same one that the female roosts in overnight.

Once they started building something different happened, they were both in there that night. And stayed all night. This has continued all week

It will be interesting to see how this develops. Has anyone else seen this before? I know some birds do, but I've never seen it in Blue Tits.

On Saturday it was Earth Hour and we joined in and turned all the lights out. It was very nice and we intend to make it a regular occurrence.

As everyone is doing selfies at the moment, here's my Earth Hour Selfie

I also monitored the surrounding area, unfortunately not so many people took part

Saturday night did bring some serious excitement though. Finally a hedgehog turned up! Only a brief visit but, 10 days later than last year, one turned up! Phew! You have to look close, but it's in the bottom right 🙂

Some big news on Heather the hedgehog but that will have to wait for another blog post of it's own.

A few years ago there was a campaign for people to plant tree whips, it was shown on springwatch. People had to plant all at the same time on the same day. We planted some and one of them has just flowered.

This week has not brought any new moths, but I did see my first beefly of the year, it was too fast for a photo though, maybe another day 🙂
