Nestbox cat problem!!

Hiya! It seems there's a new cat in the neighbourhood and I caught it today sat on top of the bird box trying to put its arm inside, grr! It hopped on the top of the fence then jumped down onto the curved lid of the nesting box. Have never had this problem before so unfortunately i've never put anything on the lid to stop a cat climbing on it, though wishing now that I had!! There's blue tits nesting inside at the moment, is there anything I can do to help stop the cat without disturbing the blue tits and scaring them away from the nest? :(
