The female blue tit has been roosting in the nest box every night for the past week or two. Arriving between 7.00pm and 7.15pm every night. How do they know what time it is?!
By the time I switch my TV on in the morning, she has left. But on Saturday morning I was thrilled to see an egg had been laid in the box!
Blue Tit Facts:
* Blue Tits can lay from 5-16 eggs, but usually they lay 10-12. The eggs are white with a few spots.
* Blue Tits lay one egg a day, usually first thing in the morning.
* The eggs hatch together, so each chick starts with an equal chance of survival.
