Blue Tit Update

Thursday, May 12th 2011

The female Blue Tit in our camera nest box has laid 9 eggs in her nest and is waiting patiently for them to hatch! She can be viewed on the screen in the Field Centre foyer and people have enjoyed watching her turn the eggs over occasionally!

Meanwhile, work continues on the new boardwalk alongside the lake which had several pairs of Greylag Geese on it today!
