Mrs GT is a Mum

Some time this afternoon the first eggs hatched in the Great Tit nestbox.
Now there are two babies to feed.

Here Mrs GT is eating the eggshell:

Great Tit Eats Eggshell after Hatching

Video feed can be seen HERE. (approximately 7am to 8pm British Summer Time)

The video feed is quite small. The way I see it  a bit larger in IE is to increase the page magnification in IE to 150% then right click on the video and change the zoom figure to 200%. A similar trick in other browsers should work in the same way.

Photo taken from my monitor as I can't take snapshots from the video feed while it is sending streaming video. Mr GT has just given Mrs GT a tiny grub to feed the babies.

  1. A great result. It's amazing to think that I can watch moments like that from the opposite side of the world! Thanks to you for your ingenuity in setting up the video in the nest box - for putting up the nest box in the first place - and then for posting it for the rest of us to see!

  2. I'm in total agreement with the commenters above! Congratulations to the parents of the two new ones, and of course to you as well :) Soon there will be more mouths to feed.
