I can't see the original sticky so will start a new thread.  Saw nearly 30,000 knot on Breydon Water yesterday.  Great weekend at Minsmere, Otter, Kingfishers, Bitterns, lots of Marsh Harriers

Our neighbour has a very small hole in the facia board above his kitchen which serves as a nest box in summer for Blue Tits. I recently saw 3 of the little darlings disappear into it whilst I was cooking one early evening. Not sure how many were already there or how many joined them but it was cold that night.

I do wonder how your little one is going to attract a mate BM. Not many other Punk BTs around.

If it gets through the winter, anything would be possible, and it would deserve a mate.

Not sure how this internest dating works, but something like.

Open minded bird wanted, looks unimportant but a sense of humour essential.

Bm....we do have a Blue tit that sleeps in our box all winter. 

Having a camera installed is the only way we know.

Never more than the single bird.

Thanks GL might give that a try after this winter, how effective are they in the darkness of the box? 

There was a Blue Tit that roosted under and inside our security light, wondering if this is the cause of this little ones problem.

Considering it is pitch black inside the box, the picture is surprisingly good.   You can see the young birds quite clearly....I imagine if you bought a better camera than the one I have, the picture would be even better.

Some of the Chips fitted to  these modern security / nest box cameras and the pictures they produce would make my old Pappy with his quarter plate brass & mahogany jobbie go purple with rage & jealousy !!  Having said that, I still reckon get the best you can afford, but don't bankrupt the Christmas Fund wink
