An unexpected nest - look carefully!
I pulled over yesterday to check my map and saw a bluetit alight on the road sign. I then saw it disappear, and then reappear. It is nesting inside the pole and I watched as it brought food back on forth. Such a lovely thing to discover.
But today has been a sad day. I went to check the grebe nest as usual this morning and found it had been completely swept away. You can imagine my reaction, I am sure. I can find no clear explanation and it is so awful after all these weeks. Nature can be very unkind sometimes.
