The warmer weather has seen the birds being a lot more active. Our B&W birdcam box has already had visits from Great Tits and Blue Tits during the day and a Blue Tit is still roosting in it at night. Nobody has reported seeing anything in our colour birdcam box, although some of the Infants spotted some blue tits flying up to it during one break-time.
Update: blue tits were spotted in the colour birdcam box on the last day of March!
If you spot anything in colour birdcam box, please let us know by commenting on this post.
Although still early in the season, we’ve already had quite a bit of interest in he box since it was cleaned out. We’ve had visits from great tits and blue tits and a blue tit has taken to roosting in the box most nights.
Watch out for nesting activity towards the end of this month and please let us know what you have seen, by leaving a comment on this post.
Mr Durward kindly helped me clean out our bird boxes at the end of January. He also modified them to make the cleaning job easier next year.
Please comment on this post if you spot any activity in our B&W birdcam box.
Mr Durward very kindly helped me clean out the nest boxes last week and modified the boxes to make them easier to clean out in future years. If you look carefully, the colour birdcam box has markings on it which will help us measure the depth of the nest. Let’s hope the birds appreciate our efforts and have a successful nesting season.
The birdcams will be live on the Internet, at least during school hours, from now on. Please let us know if you spot anything.
The birdcam will be offline until the box is cleaned out sometime during the Autumn Terms. Please check back later in the year. Don’t forget you can still leave comments on the “Birds out and about” post.
Our one remaining chick (in the colour birdcam box) earned his wings this morning, fledging before the start of school. A happy ending to a week which saw the other chicks dying off one by one. Maybe we will see it in the school grounds.
This is where you can post your comments about what you have seen on our colour birdcam during June 2008. The chicks have now hatched, will they survive to fledge? When did you first see their eyes open? When did they start to get their feathers? Help us keep a record of their development.
Although the last house sparrow brood did not survive, house sparrows tend to have 2 or 3 broods a year, so we may still see some activity in the box later this year.
This is where you can post your comments about what you have seen on our colour birdcam during May 2008. Will the birds continue to build their nest and lay some eggs?
The birds have built a nest but will they lay eggs? House sparrows and blue tits are still visiting the box but who will win the day? Please share what you see happening in our B&W birdcam box during May by leaving a comment here.

You might see birds checking out the box or roosting at night or even catch an early bird starting to nest!
