Long-tailed tits

A pair of long-tailed tits were in the garden today. They are my favourite of all the tits but only ever seem to pass through the garden, often in small flocks. I expect these two are paired for the breeding season. We have numerous coal and great tits feeding on our bird feeders all through the winter, and usually a couple of pairs of blue tits too. We’ve seen a  great tit checking out the bird-box on the workshop. This box has a camera in it (we got a present of it a couple of year’s ago) and it wasn’t used last year so it’ll be interesting to see if it will be used this year. It would be great for the kids to see.

Also borrowed the incubator from my parents today. We have half a dozen of our own duck eggs to try out and are hoping to get a few more eggs from our neighbour. The last attempt at hatching using the incubator did not work so we are hoping for more success this time around.
