Viewers’ diary Colour Birdcam – March 2009

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.

Viewers Diary B&W Birdcam – March 2009

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.

A New Nesting Season Approaches

Mr Durward very┬ákindly helped me clean out the nest boxes last week and┬ámodified 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.

Our chick has fledged!

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.
