I have blue tits in my home made beach hut nesting boxes. I also have a greater spotted woodpecker in the garden who tries to destroy the boxes and get at the chicks. They peck the hole and very quickly makes it the size of a tennis ball. I have had to do running repairs to reduce the size of the opening to prevent the woodpecker getting in. The blue tits are still tooing and froing as if their lives depend on it[their babies does depend on it] so hopefully they will survive.
