Blue Tit Nest And Eggs

Old Bird Box 

We have a bird box attached to the wall of our house which looks very old and tatty. I am loathe to get rid of it as the blue tits love to nest in it. Last year I was lucky enough to see the blue tit fledgings leave the nest although I did not manage to capture it on camera. This year I am going to be armed with camera ready and waiting.

Today my husband and I decided we would grab a few minutes together in the garden on this lovely sunny day eating ice cream. Just as my husband was about to return to his farm duties, a blue tit flew past. We both did a double take as we realised that this bird had just left the bird box. Very carefully my husband peered into the box and quietly whispered that there were some tiny eggs inside. In fact there are 10 eggs inside the nest. They are tiny – like little minature chocolate eggs.

I quickly went to fetch the camera and am now the proud owner of this photograph.

Blue Tit Eggs In Nest

I will keep a close eye on the eggs and provide updates when there is more news to report from inside the bird box.
