'Sparrow' bird-box with cock bird about to enter it.
This bird-box has been in place for six years; for the first three years blue tits nested in it (only one pair, always in the end section facing away from the house.) I then had a camera installed in the box - no nests for next two years, then a house-sparrow pair this year. There appeared to be 5 eggs in it on June 5th.. Only hen bird sitting on them. Didn't see cock at all until eggs hatched on June 15th, then both birds feeding the chicks
