One reason I don't use slug pellets, this Black bird collects four slugs at a time and rubs the slime off on the concrete path. I guess four slugs equals four chicks.
I fixed a nest box inside our Hawthorn tree during last autumn, and this spring we have breeding Great Tits in the garden. The parents are generally feeding them every two minutes, they are really hard working. I allowed myself one shot of the nest box only, we sit in the garde watching them coming and going, the chicks are in fine voice when the parents bring food.
