Hi everyone

Can any of you knowledgable people please explain what is happening in our bluetits nest??

I have a lone female who I must say is doing an excellent job at raising her chicks ( there's 6 or 7,) but has started to show some strange behaviour. She's head diving into the nest, like they do., but she's almost built a tunnel from the nestcup towards the front of the box where the entrance hole is. She goes so far in that she literally disappears! And I can hear her tapping on the bottom of the box, the problem is that the top layer of the nest is coming away and 2 of the smallest chicks keep popping their heads out for food when she comes in, but she can't see them cos she's only concentrating on the chicks in the cup, they are right near the front of the box and I'm really worried as to what is going on?

Can anyone please try to put my mind at rest as I'm really stressing out. Nail biting

Many thanks xx
