Occurs as a migrant and occasional summer breeder. The number of birds which remain to breed seems to be slowly increasing. However, breeding success is somewhat limited. A large number of nest boxes are being maintained on site to encourage nesting. However, nesting in natural cavities has been recorded on several occasions. In recent years it has become much easier to find birds during the winter months.
