At the East Kilbride Readymix Laboratory a family of Coal Tits have made their nest in the redundant cigarette bin. The box has remaining un-used for several years since the Scottish Readymix dept. became smoke free.
The birds have been seen over the last few weeks building their nest in the box with moss and leaves, followed by laying several small eggs.
Only last week did they notice the eggs have hatched and the baby chicks are chirping. The parents have been busy keeping the hungry beaks quiet with relay runs in search for food.
