The past few days I've seen a Goldcrest flitting about amongst various branches of trees & shrubs, I hope there's 2 of them. I've seen them bathing before in one of our birdbaths & they're just lovely.

A couple of years ago we had Robins build a nest in our garden shredder hopper which was in the garage. We videoed about an hour each day & whittled it down to a couple of hours from egg to fledging, just lovely! The shredder has the start of another nest in it now but it's now outside the garage so may not be as safe for the prospective family. It's under an overhang so at least it'll be dry, we'll keep an eye on it!

We've got a few nest-boxes up (mostly for our Tits) and one now contains a camera *grin* That's going to be good fun!
