'Almost Easter' eggs

OK, so it's not quite Easter yet, but April always seems very spring-like, so what better time to recheck a couple of Dipper boxes we inherited from a decades-old project. A couple of weeks ago both were built, lined and ready to go, and this afternoon both were occupied. A judicious bit of chatting ensured one female slipped away on approach, revealing four eggs, whilst the other female sat tight (in the box you can just about see under the bridge below), so one to visit another time...

So with incubation of 17 days, it hopefully won't be long before we'll be ringing our first nestlings of the year!
