New residents in the BirdJon Birdbox

Earlier in the year we popped up a birdbox with a camera inside just outside the computing office in the hope of capturing some of our local Marjon residents.

A short while ago ‘Marge’ took up residence and over the last day chicks have begun to hatch inside the box. We have captured some footage below of the chicks and Mum & Dad.

We will be keeping an eye on them over the next couple of weeks to hopefully see them fledge, and the team are working on some good names for our new additions to the Marjon family.

Do feel free to pop down and have a nosey, but please be wary of not disturbing the chicks and parents too much!
