Four Hatched, Four to Go

Switched on the nest box monitor to find four of the Great Tit eggs had hatched. Both parents now working hard to feed their offspring. PaPa was having a good long look.




Notice how the adults are very careful to use the edge of the nest so as not to stand on their babies.

  3. That's brilliant! I had a nest box in the garden for about 3 yrs but never had any birds nesting.
