I have a camera in a nest box that currently has a roosting Great tit.
this morning some time after the great tit had left I saw a blue tit investigating the box.

the the blue tit left and instantly (literally the same second) a great tit jumped in, with a sunflower seed in it's beak - I haven't seen food being brought in to a nest box before. there are feeders in the garden including a suflower one. The bird fiddled with the seed and then left with it.

Any ideas what's going on?

sounds like it hadn't finished eating the seed when it challenged the blue tit for the box

no point wasting good food !
