Nest Building

Over the last week or so i’ve been keeping an eye open for nest building birds, these Long Tailed Tits were building one in a bramble bush with only a few leaves starting to bud –
this made watching them fairly easy.
Made from sheep’s wool , Lichens, moss and spiders webs, it was fascinating seeing how they put it all together , From a deep cup shape they build it up and every now and then they would go inside and stretch the nest to enlarge it. Finally pulling the top over and making the entrance.
