Hi everyone,
I am English but now live in Sweden. I have been following this website for a few weeks now since we got our nestbox cam.

Our Blue Tits did the usual 'lets remove everything from this box' before settling down to nest building. At first there appeared to be both a male and female.

Last Thursday we saw one egg, yesterday we saw 3, but this morning they appear to have disappeared and Margot (yes I named them aswell Very Happy ) hasn't been around all day. I am hoping that she has covered the eggs whilst out for the day. As I read this sometimes happens.

I haven't seen the 2nd Blue Tit, presumably male (Jerry) for some days.
Anyway fingers crossed and getting all excited and stressed at the same time. !

Hello Maisie
I don't know how to use these message boards so I hope you receive this.
I'm in my second year of blue tit nest cam watching. It's quite addictive, isn't it? But one has to be prepared for disappointments. I fear this year is going to be bad because of the awful cold and wet weather in Britain. So I hope weather is much better. Otherwise nestlings die from lack of food. They can't be fed dried food or suet pellets from a bird table because they need the water found in living grubs. I'm just off to buy live maggots from a fish tackle shop!
Best wishes for you and your blue tits,
from Culiseta
