The Balcony Blue Tit Update!

Well, as you have probably noticed, my blog has been somewhat neglected as of late. Unfortunately, wedding planning has caused my blog to take a back seat for a few months, but wildlife watching and photographing has continued.

Watching and photographing wildlife is my passion, and I am very lucky to be married to a man who shares the same enthusiasm and passion.

So a quick update on what happened with our blue tits this year…

  • A total of 6 eggs were laid and by 24th May all 6 eggs had hatched…
  • Unfortunately, watching the nest box on a daily basis it was clear that the parents were beginning to feed the biggest chicks first. This resulted in only 3 chicks surviving by the first week of June…
  • And finally, before I left for work one morning I was lucky enough to see these 3 chicks fledge on 14th June…
  • And then the nest was empy…
