Great spotted woodpecker in great tit’s nest box

Perhaps necessary to show who is the king of this forest?

Some months ago a woodpecker made the entrance hole to the nest box larger, behaved rowdily and threw out nest materials (it is of course good that the old nest materials were removed). Sometimes it even came in daytime to check the nest box.

On the first day of the New Year however the great tit decided not to let the night accommodation slip out of hand.  It sat in the flight opening like a plug. It was already dark outside and the intruder would hardly come to its night quarters any longer …

We will see how things develop.
