2008 Season: Mark and Nicky's Birdbox Web Cam

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

We had  successful nestings in 2004  see Here  and again in 2006 Here  and 2007 Here

This year we erected the box and webcam in December 2007,

During February and March some activity was noted, moss and straw have appeared  in the box.

On March 23rd and 24th we caught a visitor !!!!

We were away for the first week of April, we returned on April 5th to discover significant progress.

However, despite regular day time visits, by April 25th there was still no roosting in the box, nor any significant progress since April 5th

We have sadly concluded the Blue Tits have opted not to make a nest in our box this year, though they are both to be seen in our garden every day.

We've been unable to determine whether they have a nest elsewhere.

Sorry for the lack of any action this year, please take a look at other nestbox websites, some listed below, and hopefully next year we'll be lucky again. See you in 2009.
