I have a nest box with 8 blue tit eggs in, mum has been sitting on the eggs since the last one was laid on the 21st April. Obviously now they won’t hatch but I hate to see her sitting there day after day, should I remove the eggs next time she leaves to feed or would that be even more distressing for her ? This is the first year I have had a camera box and am so disappointed that this has happened.
