Sue, I wouldn't worry yet, My blue tits aren't exactly giving me loads of visits. I don't normally turn my cameras on until 11am though, So I probably miss all the morning visits but from what I have seen its not at the "Kathy" stage should we call it or the Flo stage haha My sparrows are but so far that is only nest material / building I have.
Wow! She was eager to get started Kathy, I’m sure she will pace herself they somehow know when the time is right, don’t they!?
According to the weather report in my region (east coast), we are going to get some really rough weather slowly coming in from the west, starting next week, so hopefully it won’t be as bad as ‘beast from the east’.
Update Flo bringing in moss to the box and sorting it still. This morning she has brought in a flower from the hedge (Forsythia) and taken it out again!!! but progress is being made as lots of nest wriggles. Will get some footage when anything transpires.

Thanks Paul, Benn & Sammi
Not sure about where she is in the group missed a lot of your posts as I have been poorly again so not felt like doing much. Anyway feeling better today so just right for my holiday next Saturday. I will read posts and try to catch up with you all.
Paul -Starling Spike continues to visit daily but no sign yet of another female in the box. I will be pleasantly surprised if this progresses to a nest but will post if any change.
Yes Kathy, You are 100% ahead when it comes to Blue tits, I only have one piece of moss at the moment. But its a start especially with this shocking weather rain rain rain here in Liverpool! What would you like to win for it Kathy? I'll get some chocolates out in the post to you if you want.
Another great video Kathy . So sorry to hear you’ve been poorly again. Hope you stay well and your Flo will help keep your pecker up!. She’s certainly ahead of the pack 🏆🥇, so here are your awards for first blue tit nest . Keep those great videos coming Kathy, so uplifting for those of us that have nothing else to watch lol. Sue

Thank you for your kind words Sue and Paul. Don't you dare send me anything Paul I like chocolates but I am Diabetic so can only have one a week if I'm lucky!!! Don't want to be carried off to the 'ossy.
Sue You are so gracious with your comments regarding my video's don't know what the YouTuber's think of the quality but I know they wouldn't be the same without all the gaffs & my Leicestershire dialect!
Don't forget we have until the end of April for nesting to start so there is still much time for that camera box There will definitely be a prize for you when that happens! Off now to read other posts as I will be busy with my jobs next week.
I'm pleased your're feeling a bit better now Kathy, so hopefully you'll be back to 100% better by next Saturday for your holiday - have a great time.
Ooo-er re chocolates - I dare not and would not now, tell you how many chocolates I eat everyday. My family keep telling me I'm a bit too thin so trying to put a bit of weight on, with no success so far, I'm still the same weight I was in 1976. I think it's all the wrinkles everywhere now which just makes me look thinner!
