BLUE TIT (Parus Caeruleus)

Spotted Flycatcher by Sandra Palme

Of the eight species of tits that breed in the British Isles, the Blue Tit is the most common. A regular visitor to gardens, especially with bird feeders. They are very territorial and therefore you should only put up a single nest box for this charming and busy little bird.
Place the nest box 2.5meters to 4 meters high on a wall or a tree and ensure there are no garden fence/walls close by from which a cat may jump. Do not place the box in full sunshine and place in a quiet spot. Try to avoid placing the nest box too close to a window aperture. We recommend that you clean out the nest box in November, well after the breeding season has concluded.
