Here are a few of the seven Blue Tit chicks that managed to fledge successfully spotted in the twisted willow near the pond.

Sadly this little one never made it out of the box.

Webcam One has been adopted, so far, by a pair of Blue Tits which we hope will stay around to have one or two broods in 2007. Here are some screen captures as well as the last 9 images from the still snapshot cam.

To force the nesting material into the rounded shape, they stretch their wings and make circular motions.

Up to Sunday 15th April 2007, Mrs Blue Tit laid seven eggs!! Completely oblivious to the excitement only a couple of metres away we were drinking tea in a hhhhhhot garden.

This was her first few moments away from her eggs!

Another 3 days, and an egg a day, now ten eggs grace the nest. This should be one BIG brood!

WE WERE SUPRISED TO SEE 9 EGGS TUESDAY BUT TEN?!!!

With 10 eggs to look after Mum spends little time away from the nest. When she returns it's shuffle the eggs and get settled again!

Well all seven chicks flew the nest Sunday May 20th 2007 between 07.15 and 07.45, the last one taking a while to get up the courage. We've seen them in the trees around the garden still being fed by Mum and Dad, so we think they all made it OK. We're putting video of the final moments of the drama up on line in the next couple of days, and the camera will move to the small bird feeder shortly. Chickens will be back soon!! By the way I removed the dead chick for burial by Catherine. It was a lovely service!
 

So with an empty box, let us remember them at their lavatorial best!

 

Below is a video of our very first visitor to the feeder. A blackbird who you'll see alot.
