Fun with the Long-tailed tits

Filed under: May — Hennie van Heerden @ 7:38 am

Had a couple of spare moments and tried my luck with the long-tailed tits again. This is the first year that we’ve had them nesting around our house and I really think they are the cutest little birds! It does seem that we have more new bird species nesting on the premises then previous years. Goldfinches and Common Redstart to name a few, but also the Robin never made its nest around the house before and neither did the Long-tailed tits. A very good development! Could it have something to do with leaving the meadow behind our house untouched (we are slowly turning this back into nature) and allow wild flowers and weeds to grow? Really hope so!
