We have 9 eggs now – great view of all the eggs in the nest

See Mrs Blue tit all snuggled up in her feathery nest before getting up, having a stretch and going for a quick fly break outside.
As she gets up you will see her 9 eggs in all their glory.!

Mrs tit is spending more and more time in our nest box now and Mr Tit has started to feed her whilst she sits on the eggs.

4 Eggs in the Nest!

We now have 4 eggs! After the boiling hot day we’ve had Mrs Tit left her eggs uncovered today. We know from previous years that once blue tits start to lay their eggs they will lay 1 egg per day. This year Mrs Tit has been keeping all her eggs totally covered up which has made getting a video quite difficult.

Maybe she has left them uncovered to give us an easter egg treat! :o)

We have our first egg of 2011!

Mrs Blue tit has provided us with the first egg of the 2011 season!
But you have to be quick because she is very good at hiding it!

This is the first video from this morning, taken at 6.25am as she left the nest from her overnight stay and you can clearly see the egg but she’s had it covered for the rest of the day

We are getting on average an email every 2 minutes and have over 5,000 emails in our birdcam folder!!

Mrs Tit has almost finished building her nest!

Firstly sorry for the lack of updates at my end. I’ve been so busy at work that updates for have been put on the back burner.

Anyway here is an update today and in the video below you can see Mrs Blue Tit bring in nesting material and then flapping it down to compact it.
