    Would it be too cosy?

    It's a while since I was here, since Covid my birdbox has been rather empty 🤔 However "our" Bluetit returned to spend Christmas & New Year with us. My question concerns bedding. I've always left the box empty but have often wondered if putting in some sort of bedding would be a benefit, or a...

    Sensitive wildlife camera to capture blue tits coming and going from nest

I was over the moon and the past couple of weeks have been so happy for me watching the parents come and go.

Does anyone have any idea what it is? And more importantly does anyone have any idea why the blue tit feels...

    Blue tit chicks killed in birdbox. Should the nest be removed

    Hi Apologies for the blunt title there but I’m unsure what to do. I built a birdbox in January with a camera internally and within days some Bluetits were visiting. 5 months later, they built a nest and there were 9 chicks and one unhatched egg. About 1 1/2 weeks into the chicks being born, 6...
