Our Blue Tit Babies Have Hatched

I had been intending to do a post about food (!) but just had to share our bird news and show you these pictures.

Completely spurning our all-mod-cons-wooden-nesting-box-with-camera, the parents selected instead a hole in the stone wall of the shed opposite the house. It’s obviously quite a spacious hole and very cosy but the only camera is John’s taking photos from
outside rather than in the heart of their little home. The service is appallingly slow

More! And make it quick!A few days ago we heard lots of little cheeps coming from the wall, and now John has managed to capture these three extremely demanding and ravenous babies, being fed on constant demand by both parents who must be exhausted with the non-stop flying backwards and forward with tasty morsels to stuff down the babies’ beaks to keep them even slightly satisfied.

They should be leaving the nest quite soon – we’ll have to make sure Boots is not around to make smart work of any crash landings
