Nest box cleaning time!

I was walking past the large Oak tree when I noticed that the entrance to the nest box had been blocked up by cobwebs so I decided it was time to clean out the nest box. I got my dad to take it down and we opened it up. Inside we saw two huge House Spiders and a thick blanket of webs unfortunately there was 7 eggs inside a thick nest which belonged to a pair of Blue Tits. This was strange as the other nest box hadn’t been occupied yet there were lots of juvenile Blue Tits on the feeder!
