2006 Season: Mark and Nicky's Birdbox Web Cam Page 1

                      

It was installed in December 2003 at our home in Basingstoke, Hants , UK.

We had a successful nesting in 2004  see Here  and a sad outcome in 2005 see Here

This year we erected the box and webcam in December 2005,

As far as we were aware, no birds had shown an interest, until the first day of British Summer Time !

The pictures below show a bird roosting for the first time this year at dusk on March 26th.

On the 29th March the bird started bringing in moss, to start the nest hopefully.

On April 3rd two birds were briefly spotted in the box, (too fast for the webcam to catch a still)
