At last the nesting box is in use. A pair of blue tits have taken up residence. Sometimes it looks like it’s a very tight squeeze to get through the opening.
This impressive, magnificent and slightly scary creature made an appearance at last year’s Christmas Fair in Exeter. The sheer size and the deadly looking talons make the reports of eagles like this attacking deer and other species of large animals entirely conceivable. And I have to say it’s fairly unnerving when those eyes bore into yours.
