Quick Box Update

At weekend Gail and I checked our Pied Flycatcher boxes in Bowland. We were down to just 17 boxes to check taking account of empty boxes and those occupied by bees! Out of those seventeen we have:

Blue Tit - 5 boxes occupied
Nuthatch - 1 box occupied
Great Tit - 6 boxes occupied
Pied Flycatcher - 5 boxes occupied

We managed to ring 39 chicks and these were 19 Blue Tits, 8 Nuthatches and 12 Great Tits. The Pied Flycatchers had mostly hatched or were in the process of hatching. The hatched broods had only hatched that day or the day before, and were therefore too small to ring, so hopefully they will all get ringed next week.


Postings this coming week are going to be infrequent as I've got a busy week ahead with surveys and a family wedding, but I'll try my best to post something!
