|Bit of a climb for me, but a great view for these chicks!|
|I want my mum...|
In the end we ringed nine chicks, which is probably more than done in the county in the last couple of decades! A quick check of the nestboxes confirmed the very low occupancy this year (as last), with birds variously laying, incubating or with small chicks. One Blue Tit (a retrap of a bird ringed at the feeders here in December 2013) was even incubating 11 eggs, which is pretty impressive!
