A beautiful bird’s nest

Its spring at last and the birds are nesting.  Here is a Long Tailed Tit’s nest, so beautifully made with moss and lichen, but sadly if I can see it so can the Magpies and I fear for these little birds.

Long Tailed Tits are just one of a large family of Tits – here are some others:

From the top Blue Tit, Great Tit, Long Tailed Tit, Cole Tit and Marsh Tit – if you’d like to know more about these birds read my book An Illustrated Country Year – Nature Uncovered Month by Month when it is published in August!

  1. The quail are just now hatching their eggs and the roadrunners are busy hunting for them. I have found broken quail eggs around the grounds, some yolk still visible. Our quail have anywhere from 15 to 20 young and now I know why – the attrition rate is so high.
