Gwyllt Hollow - Birch Log Nest Box

This nest box is made from a birch log. I adapted it by adding a waterproof box on the top that houses my camera and some small sensored lights. The great tits took to the box pretty quickly and built a nest in just a day! The female started laying soon after.  Her 8 eggs hatched on the 4th May.

Sadly, very suddenly, the great tit tits started to die today. It was very sudden. I fear that a chick died and was deep in the nest. Flies got in and it possibly meant maggots taking over.  I will clear the nest box very soon. Sadly, this pair are unlikely to breed again this year.
