Shouldn't have eaten all those peanuts

We noticed a couple of Bluetits and a hole in our wall yesterday.

I can't fit through here
No its too small !!
Let me show you how its done!
There thats it
I am in but can I get out
Yes JUST.
Now watch it happen for real.

Given that we had fed them several kgs of peanuts over the winter I felt sorry for them after seeing this so I went out with a chisel and made the hole slightly larger. This morning we noticed they are both now using the hole. So watch this space for more about this nesting pair.

Only just seen this... great movie... it is the male that is unable to get in.... brighter blue cap and the tendency to flash his crest a lot!!
They would have had a go at nesting there even if you hadn't enlarged the hole! Lovely bit of observation...
