Hi I don't know whether or not to be concerned over a blue tit nest near me, it is in A subway in one of the lights in a tiny crack , the babies have been very noisey this last week and parents have been going there but the crack is so small I'm really concerned the birds may not be able to get out if they are well fed. Am I over reacting? Thanks Sharon

Hi Sharon

Blue Tits will nest anywhere and they don't need that much space. If mum and dad can get in and out so will the chicks. The chicks are quite small when they fledge and they will have been sitting in a cup nest which is about 2" in diameter. At fledging time they are about a quarter of the size of an adult so I don't think Mum would have made her nest there if this would have been a problem to her.
