I’ve been meaning to post for a while as we’ve got two groups of birds with chicks at the house.
Once again the starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) are nesting in the eaves of the house. They nest in the roof each year and the chicks hatched a few weeks ago. They must be getting quite big by now – they’re certainly noisy.
We’ve also got Blue tits (Parus caeruleus) nesting in the sparrow terrace. This is the second time the blue tits have used the terrace since we put it up in 2007. We first heard the chicks at the beginning of last week and they’ve been getting louder each day… and the parents busier.
