THE BALCONY BLUES: Nesting Materials

To hopefully encourage the pair of blue tits who are visiting my feeder and bird box everyday, I decided to invest in some suitable nesting material. I bought some meadow hay (guinnea pig and rabbit bedding), cotton wool balls and garden twine.

I have mixed all the material together and put it into a nut feeder to hang from my bird feeding station. I have hung it near to a coconut half and fat ball which the blue tits love feeding from.

Later in the day I managed to get these photographs of one of the blue tits checking out the selection of nesting materials on offer.
