Blue tit progress

Our camera-box blue tits are doing well. Nine eggs turned out 7 chicks which are being constantly fed by mum and dad. One of the adults has hollowed out the side of the nest – possibly as a reaction to the hot weather – and the chicks spend most of their time in this new ‘cave’. Consequently they are well hidden from the camera most of the time, until the gaping mouths erupt when the adults appear with food. They are quick and hard to count but there were 6 chicks at leat yesterday. Feathers just appearing.
