Blue tits

A message and pictures from DKG.

The blue tits are still feeding young. I went to the nest site first thing and it was very quiet for approximately twenty minutes and I was beginning to think the worst but then both birds arrived together, entered the nest and left. Perhaps it was the cold (there was frost on the ground) and they are having difficulty in finding food. A couple of photos, they are not that good, poor light and high ISO so they are a bit grainy. I will again check back on Friday; hopefully there will be some sunshine.

There was a question from a Friend:

” The blue tits and the pictures are great and people are very interested in them. Are they using separate entrance and exit? I watched a nest last year and both birds went in through one tiny hole in a wall and came out from another a good 30cm away; they did it every time. ”

DKG’s response:

The blue tits do appear to be using two different holes. The other day they were using the top hole but yesterday they were entering and leaving from the bottom area. A two up two down…? “
