Hi everyone
Having had a successful brood of Blue Tits at end of May, have just seen a pair of Great Tits using the same nest box, is it a bit late to lay eggs at this time of year, or do Great Tits having two broods in one season is fairly common!!

Hi Melmole

GTs do sometimes have second broods but not that often. See Pete's postings.

I have a late nest in a different box to my first (normal time) box and not the same pair. The chicks are about 9-12 days' old.

It is getting a bit late now for the GTs to be finding food, given that they will not be hatched for about 2 weeks after the last egg laid, but good luck if they decide to use your box. Thumbs up
