Hello Everyone,

Last summer I put up a bird box in my garden for decorative purposes and to my surprise Blue Tits started nesting, queue operation clean the bird feeders and fill them all up!

I think my blue tits where quite late at nesting as there are currently babies inside, but are getting louder by the day. I have not seen any by the hole in the box so not sure when they may fledge.

Since they have started nesting I have fallen in love with birds, I brought various bird feeders and have an array of birds visiting me Smile

I do have a couple of cats that try to get in to my garden by I run at them clapping - people must thing iv lost the plot! Most have got the message that this is my area, KEEP OUT.

So exciting that my babies maybe fledging soon, I have fallen in love with watching mum and dad coming and going. The past 2 days the dad has started to appear less and less.. Is this normal?

Hello Hollie - Welcome to the forum. I don't think we've noticed the male coming less frequently as the chicks get nearer to fledging, but I doubt if it's anything to worry about - the female should be able to cope.

Perhaps he's trying to encourage the chicks come out to find their own food? Laughing
