Last night caught cat with it paw right in the nest box where bluetits have nested. Put a sparkly hairband of my daughters over it to scare it off if it came back over night. Have removed it this morning & put suet pellets out. I had a quick peek inside and the bluetit was absolutely still - would it be sleeping or has the cat scared it to death? Died of shock or something? Been watching the box & no sign of anyone going in out at all.
