Weekdays at 8-00pm is a regular date with BBC2 Bill Oddie and Springwatch. Compulsive stuff. We have yet to be convinced that our own little colony of blue-tits have taken up residence in the nesting box this year. Everything seems to be about a month behind. Apart from the bumble bees that is. They have been on the go for weeks, enjoying the well-preserved (chilled) blooms on the early plants.
