We had to change a pole over today. Inside the cable guard that was running up the side of pole was a Great Tit nest with 7 or 8 chicks. We tried our best to take the guard off as carefully as possible. We managed to save the nest and put it into a new guard and leant it against an Ash tree. The parents were about but didn't go to the new nest site.

 

When we'd finished, we put the nest back into some of the old cable guard and nailed the gaurd back on the new pole. We didn't think the tits would return. We left site for dinner, but when we'd finished we had to return to the next field to make the wires live. As we sat waiting for our control centre to get back in contact with us, we saw the tits return and eventually go into the guard and continue feeding the chicks.

 

Brilliant to see and we were all made up. :thumbs: :boogy:

 

 

Had to go back today to finish off the job. Still there and took these pictures. Hope they came out alright, I can make the Birds out here. Hope you can.

I have a bit of permission for rabbits and the wood is next to that, its trawled to death by dog walkers but the kids round here would sooner be on the xbox than nesting or making dens. I Netted the area last year and brought the numbers right down but when i was out nesting i saw upward of 30 rabbits  :blink: ..

 

Only ever found one before jd so i hope your right  :thumbs: .
