blue tit nest what do i do

Hope I'm in the right section not done this before. Yesterday we discovered a nest of blue tits six or seven we think in a vent in our daughters bedroom situated between the inside and outside wall. We think that they hatched! yesterday. We don't know what to do, if we leave them how long before they go?

Leave well alone.....the bluetit parents know best. They will fledge from about 2 1/2-3 weeks, normally about 18 days, after hatching.

Welcome to Birdforum.

You must leave the nest as it is an offence to destroy , damage or prevent access to a nest. As Joanne states it will be about another 2 weeks before they leave the nest.
