Last year we had bluetits nesting in one of the urns on the terrace at Barrou...

It seemed an odd choice and it proved to be a bad one..

When we spotted the parents going in and out feeding the young birds we set a fence up around their adopted home to keep out the neighbours cat but sadly while we were away a few days we came back to find one of the adult birds dead and no sign of the young.

This year another pair have chosen a watering can in the garden at 'Les Balcons' again not exactly the safest of locations...we can't be there to look after them but the good thing is that there are few cats around.

Tits seem to chose the oddest locations judging from what I found on the net with my favourite being an ashtray...
