Incubation commences

The female has continued to lay an egg every day since the 23rd April, when one egg was seen. It is hard to see how many eggs there are because they are mostly covered up during the day and the female has been roosting in the box at night. However, we calculate there must be around 10, which is probably the complete clutch as the Blue tits appear to have started incubating the eggs today (May 2nd).

  1. The brooding blue tit has been very restless today. Can she hear the chicks cheeping? Are they nearly ready to hatch?
