Blue tit nests

Have a camera in my blue tits best. Bird is sitting on the nest most of the day but there are no eggs. Is this going to be a bogus nest. 

  • I thought the same but suddenly she uncovered 7 eggs! She was laying and hiding them until she was ready to incubate them. You never know!
  • Hi Brenda

    I think Deborah might have hit the nail on the head here with abit of luck. My female this year is laying on 4 eggs, but she's slowly buried them under nesting materials to the point you would think there was none.
    If your tit is sitting on the nest most of the day chances are she's now incubating them. About 12-16 days from witnessing starting her incubating behaviour you'll hopefully see some signs of hatchlings.

    Cheers,
