First Tenants

I was really happy to receive an email from Ardross Primary School today to tell me some tenants have moved into one of their nest boxes! This is what teacher Catherine Bishop told me:

“Here's a picture of one of the ring neck pair that have moved into the bird box you put up outside Room 5...

“It's lovely to hear him whistling and funny to see his tail waggling when it wants other birds to clear off. His lady is inside.”

How cool is THAT!? This box was installed earlier in 2012 (see this post for the full story) and already some local native birds are nesting inside. I’m heading back to the school soon so can hopefully get some photos of the chicks
