Busy Bluetits

We have Kestrels nesting in Salt’s Mill which is impressive but we also have cute Bluetits nesting in various tiny holes around the building. This one is only about 7 ft. (2.5m) above the ground right next to the entrance to the Early Music Shop. I think several people have seen something flash in front of them as they have been walking past but by the time you look for it it is either in the trees or has disappeared in the hole in the wall.

It looks quite a tight fit but they launch themselves from it quite well.
