MAKING A HOME AT St JOHN'S
Despite the on going pandemic, wild birds are carrying on with the task of raising families.
Even though the nest boxes only went up at the beginning of the year, I’m delighted to say that we have a family of Blue Tits in the box behind the old Art/ICT building. What’s more, it looks like we may have birds in a second box as there appears to be nesting material in it, although I’m not yet able to confirm what they are..as soon as I know..
A colourful mix of blue, yellow, white and green makes the blue tit one of our most attractive and most recognisable garden visitors. In winter, family flocks join up with other tits as they search for food. A garden with four or five blue tits at a feeder at any one time may be feeding 20 or more.
What they eat: Insects, caterpillars, seeds and nuts.
