We have had a GT roosting in our box since at least early October. Facing a brand new metal hip and a ban on ladder climbing, I cleaned the box early and installed a new camera. Testing it that evening for night vision we were surprised to find a rooster.

At the beginning of March moss started to appear in the box. Every morning the male(?) sings calls outside the box until the female(?) enters inspects the box for a few minutes, including vigorous pecking of the the inner surfaces.

By today there is a lot of moss in the box but in no sense a nest.

Hoping we get another successful hatching!!
