Fledging

Well after a very upsetting 2008 when all of the chicks died I am pleased to report that in 2009 all of the chicks have fledged.

We spent this afternoon watching as each chick fledged and left the nest. Each of the chicks would come to the mouth of the bird box and where calling their parents. The lack of response back seemed to be the push that the chicks needed to fledge the nest. The first few chicks took about an hour each but as the numbers dropped then they became quicker and quicker.

I managed to setup my video camera just in time to capture the last chick leaving the nest. So long blue tits, we hope you live long and prosper.
