I’ve been watching my bird box which has had bluetits families for the past 5yrs but this year I have only seen them occasionally due to various ‘away from home’ issues (health).
Have i missed them fledging, were they earlier this year? In past years it’s been first couple of weeks in June before the soul lifting first flight from the nest box and I’ve been hoping to see them do same this year. After reading various other posts I’m worried that something may have befallen the family but can’t think it’s due to predators at the box as it’s located in a very ‘safe’ spot where cats and non flyers can access.
I made sure someone filled all feeders whilst I wasn’t home so know there was plenty of food available.
I’ll be very happy to hear from anyone that I may just have missed the event this year....please?
Keeping everything crossed.
