Feeding Time

The Blue Tit chicks have really grown in the past eight days.

On our early morning walk I spotted about six House Martins swooping about overhead.
Managed a quick snapshot as one neared its nest on a nearby house

 House Martin

There appeared to be three nests under that roof.


  1. Great to see, thanks. Are there four or more?

  2. Adrian: There are times when I can see 6 beaks at once. Mrs BT keeps shuffling them about in the nest.

  3. Good to see your blue tit chicks doing so well. 7 hatched here and two died quite quickly and another last night - so down to four. Hoping those four survive to fledging. By coincidence we spotted house martin nests when out on Sunday :)

  4. I don't know what happened overnight but there are now only three live chicks, two large and healthy and the other a bit of a runt.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
