It was a cold, grey, wet and sad day in Railway Land Lewes... The Long tailed tits that I have been filming are heart broken. Their beautiful nest was discovered by a Magpie and attacked. A dozen eggs broken, eaten and scattered on the ground. Life will go on and one bird's lose is another's gain but the nest, as with a Wren's is, if well enough hidden, used in the winter for these tiny birds, literally as a hotel with as many as 20 or so guests all huddling together to beat the cold.
