Our eggs started to hatch on Tuesday morning! As each chick hatched, mum ate the empty shells. Lots of the children in school were lucky enough to see the chicks hatching live.

By Thursday all 11 eggs had hatched. Mum and dad now have the tricky task of feeding 11 hungry babies. Blue Tits love caterpillars and can eat up to 100 a day!

(The live feed is in night vision – black and white - most of the time due to the Oak tree being in full leaf now!)

We now have 11 eggs in our nest!

The female has started sitting on the eggs for most of the day and night. If you are lucky you may spot the male bird bringing her some food. Mum also regularly turns the eggs in the nest.

Blue Tit eggs usually take about 12-15 days to hatch, so keep watching in early May!

Here is this year’s visitor to the Bird box.

The Blue Tit spent a couple of weeks removing all traces of the old nest. Now they have built a very cosy new nest.

Now we watch and wait – will we be lucky and have another clutch of eggs? Fingers crossed!
