Hi - sorry if I'm not posting this in the right part of the forum?

My Mum and I have been following Blue Tit's nesting for a few years now, last weekend we both had 8 chicks a piece that were thriving with Mum and Dad working so hard!

However, I received a call earlier today from Mum in tears, apparently another Blue Tit had got into her nest and thrown a few chicks out of the nest, needless to say they died:( a very distraught Blue Tit Mum came back and tried to put one of the dead chicks back in, but to no avail:(

There are two chicks alive, what do you think their chances are if this demon Blue Tit doesn't come back to get them, will Mum and Dad stay and still look after them?

A very sad day:(

on a brighter note, our 8 chicks are still doing well, Mum and Dad doing a brilliant job!!

would appreciate any feedback, has anyone come across this before?

Thanks Tracey
