While checking the progress of vegetable seedlings in the garden this afternoon I realised that the adult Blue Tits were extremely vocal so I went to investigate.
Initially I thought they were indicating that one of the neighbourhood cats was nearby but then I noticed a very young head peeping out of the nest box so I dashed back indoors to tell Anita and to get the camera.
From about 1.15 pm we watched and counted four young Blue Tits leave the box and fly into a neighbours Birch.
So here are a few images of this event.
Do I really what to leave?
Hmmm ... it's a bit different out there!
OK ... Here goes.
During the afternoon the adults made various forays to the feeder closest to the house and carried food back to their fledglings who remained in their hidden location. I caught one adult vocalising as another local feline slinked across the patio!
