When starting an Office Fitout Project in Winnersh, Reading recently our lads showed a much softer side to that of the rugged builder everyone thinks of …..
As part of the external works, brick repairs were required. When surveying an external area where a brick was missing a nest was found containing 14 very lively, noisy Blue Tit babies !! The parents had made the nest and when observed from afar were flying in and out providing the babies with food !
An urgent call was made to the RSPCA for advice and then a visit to the local garden centre for a nesting box which was promptly installed immediately next to the cavity and the babies, with their nest intact, were moved. Within 30 minutes Mum and Dad had found them and continued to feed.
Within a few weeks all 14 birds left the nest safe and well.
