Watch the video as each brave chick takes one giant leap for birdkind.
Just after our blue tits fledged at the beginning of June, we noticed two house sparrows had built a nest in the eaves at the front of our house. Soon we were hearing the noisy chicks calling for their parents and now they have fledged we often see them being fed in our garden.
For the first time since we put it up several years ago, we have a pair of blue tits using our nesting box this spring. We have been monitoring it since we noticed they’d taken an interest in it around February. Watched them building a nest and generally going in and out. A few days ago the eggs hatched and they have been going in and out constantly with little green catepillars and whatever else they can find to keep them fed. It makes for compuslive viewing!
