A few years ago we put up an insect box on the back wall of the office. The first year an enterprising spider spun it’s web all across the front and probably took out all the potential residents.
This year we have recently spotted a wren feeding chicks in the top of the box, so it would be interesting to know if the insects have also managed to move in.
Here’s a couple of pics of the parent wrens on the way in to the nest. Not very good but they move pretty fast! Sue also spotted a family of five wren chicks on the edge of the forest, so the mild winter seems to have done well for them. By the way during the winter many of the house martin nests are used as winter roosts by wrens. Very adaptable!!
