Pets and Their People: Birdwatch: Hunt for the ideal home.

Byline: MARK WARD

Blue and great tits either use garden nestboxes or search for holes in old trees and walls.

The marsh tit uses holes in deciduous trees while the willow tit makes its own in rotten wood.

Long-tailed tits have begun to construct their amazing dome-shaped nests in hedgerows.

The crested tit, found only in ancient Scottish pines, makes its own nest hole in the huge trees.
