Well that’s nature…It’s the survival of the fittest

Over the last week we have lost some of our blue tit chicks!

Of course we will never really know why but this year there has been a bit of a divide between chicks, those that seemed to thrive and get bigger and more weaker chicks that have now died. Maybe there aren’t enough caterpillars about to feed a whole family of chicks.
The recent unusually hot weather didn’t help either as our garden is south facing and gets very hot! The chicks seemed to be struggling in the heat so one day my wife constructed a parasol to keep them in the shade, the parents thankfully seem totally unfazed by this structure and are happily still feeding the 3 remaining chicks
