Many thanks, love the webcam, mine have started showing an interest in leaving the nest today and this has given me such a fabulous insight. Its the first year I have been able to monitor my nestbox and has been an absolute joy.
What do the parents do now? Will there be no more activity now until next year?

Oops! Embarassed I seem to have missed this message. Many apologies - and welcome to the Forum.

The parents continue to feed the chicks for a while, until they learn to find their own food - but I don't know how long this takes. We have lots of juvenile bluetits on the hearts and peanut feeders that are near the kitchen window, and they've also learnt to take mealworms from the caged feeder. Yesterday there were 5 juveniles crammed into the caged hearts feeder - they're certainly getting through a lot of food!
