The April sunshine is still with us so I took the opportunity to sit outside with my camera to see if I could catch the birds as they came to the feeders. I took a coffee out with me as it wasn’t as warm out of the sunshine. I was patient and although I was quite close to the birds they did come as the pictures below show.
The Blue Tit, shown above, visited our Camera Nestbox as I sat below. It was aware I was around and did stop a moment when the shutter clicked on my camera. But my presence didn’t deter it much as you can see – it continued removing nesting material from the box!! What a lot of effort goes on building a nest it seems – are this pair inexperienced perhaps?
Weather conditions do appear to have an influence on how many birds come to the feeders. Cold, wet and windy days definitely have much more activity than the sunny ones!
