Long-Tailed Tit building nest.

This was a nice sight today (Sun Mar. 9th)!



I'm trying to resist the temptation to go back in the dark and cut off the diagonal twig going from top left to middle right, for future photographs (the bird won't be in the nest if it's not brooding eggs or chicks). I don't think I will though!

I hope the gales forecast for tomorrow won't damage the nest.

Jim

Yes things are livening up now, found a pair of swans doing the same. I shall post the image later.

In circumstances you find may be difficult, as they are in my case, but you are right not to disturb things after all you want to catch the pics with the chicks etc. We sometimes get them nesting in our conifer but one year, the nests were torn apart in strong winds. Unfortunately eggs were present at the time.

Nice shot given the obstructions.

Re: Long-Tailed Tit building nest.

What a brilliant thing to have in your garden.

If you leave the twigs until the eggs have hatched there's less chance of the nest being abandoned.
