So our final three blue tits have fledged the nest. They will most probably stay with mum and dad for a while until they can fully fend for themselves.

A short but sweet encounter this year.
See you all next year as we cross our fingers that our box is chosen again. We’ve enjoyed having you, sweet chicks.

The chicks are growing well. It looks like we have four well-fed chicks and two very tired parent birds bringing food back and forth.

Did you know that a blue tit chick can eat up to 100 caterpillars every day! That’s a lot of caterpillar finding for our parent birds.

Wow! Our beautiful chicks are definitely getting bigger.
If you watch them closely, they can hear their parents before they arrive as they all open their beaks wide before she pops in!

We think there are nine chicks altogether. Do you agree? If you watch closely, some of them are emerging from the nest and we can see their bodies.

Thank you! I took a look at yours at Ringwood. Very neat and tidy nest indeed! Mum was nesting. Have your chicks hatched yet?
