Blue Tit behaviour

Hi folks,

I have a pair of great tits nesting in a box in my back garden but all day today, a pair of blue tits have been on top of the box and flying to the entrance hole and hovering there. They have been doing so regularly I am worried they may chase the nesting birds away.

I have recorded it if anybody who can help advise me wants to to see it.

many thanks,

paul.

  • Hi Paul, am afraid there is nothing you can do to deter the bluetits as its nature and although we always want the best for our nesting birds it would be unlawful to interfere . Its really up to the great tits to defend their nest. Just gotta accept the good and the bad of watching our wonderful wildlife
