Earlier in the year we watched a successful fledgling of blue tits from one of our bird boxes. There is a catch-up video here if you missed it. We’re hoping for same or better next year!
Around this time of year blue tits start to check out the available lodgings we provide and start to stay over night, especially on cold nights. After some clues to some recent activity we spotted, we checked the camera footage. For the past week a blue tit has taken an interest in one of the boxes and last night spent their first night.
Our budding bird watchers in Year 7 sent a final update to BBC Wiltshire programme, Wild about Wiltshire. This aired on Sunday 17th June and you can hear again on iPlayer Radio or on the player below.[audio mp3=”
Here is a time lapse video looking back at when the Blue Tits laid eggs in one of our boxes, through to the chicks leaving the nest.
