A few years ago I put up a nesting box in the hope of being able to photograph some garden bird activity at close quarters. 
It has remained empty for years but to my surprise on Saturday 25th April a pair of Blue Tits have taken to the box and set up home. Amazing, even though I’m working in the garden nearby they don’t seem to mind me and don’t seem at all camera shy. 
Fascinating watching them!
