Nuthatches Nesting in a Nestbox

June 10, 2017 at 9:14 pm

Most people when they buy a house place a nest-box in the garden. Within a year or so Blue Tits will have found it or perhaps even Great Tits or Coal Tits. It would always be a dream to have a pair of Nuthatches take up residence in your nest-box. This weeks blog is all about such an event.
Soon after inspecting the box the Nuthatches will commence plastering with mud the underside of the lid to effectively seal it to the main structure of the box. This effectively means that from now on you will not be able to open the box to look inside otherwise you would break the seal of mud. However, should you decide to look inside the Nuthatches will re-plaster and seal it up again which is what they are doing in some of the gallery photos. click here
