Great Tit Roosting

I've had this Great Tit roosting in one of my bird boxes since November. He always comes into the box about 5pm and sits on the camera and then settles down on the floor to sleep. My wife has called it Blue, i love how it looks down the side holes having a good look then tucks his head in his wing and goes asleep, wish i could just got sleep like this bird does lol. The camera is a Green Feathers IP camera and using a Green Feathers daylight lamp,I thought the lamp may put birds off when i put it in but this bird doesn't mind at all.

    That's brilliant @Voyagerxp. Here's hoping you get your very own Springwatch style action  :)
  • Wonderful. We haven't had success with nesting cameras but so good to see your great tit.
  • Just watched the Great Tit @Voyagerxp how lovely for you. Nature is wonderful, we have some nest boxes in our garden. Noticed lately that the blue tit has been going in and out of one of them. And picking at the entrance hole. Would so love for them to nest in them this year. I have been so blessed to see so many birds in my garden during the lockdown and it certainly has helped me cope with everything.

    I'm very jealous @Voyagerxp!  I would love to have this happen in my garden.  I've put a box up but am 99% sure it will never be used.
