Great Tits inspecting nest box

  • In reply to anpap:

    Just noticed 5 eggs in the nest box today. Seems that the mother hides them under the cotton and other soft material when she leaves the nest.

  • Very nice Anpap, hopefully over the weeks you will be able to see them hatch, grow and fledge.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  • Good morning!

    Hope you are all doing well...

    Video from the nest box is currently live on Youtube:

  • That is a sure Awwwww viewing. Hope you are successful and have babies later on.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  • That's lovely to see the live streaming Andreas, good luck for the nesting season.

  • Hi all!

    This is an old thread, but just wanted to give an update.

    Great Tits are came back to the nest box in January. The first breed - 7 birdies - fledged on the 7th of April.
    We now have a second breed, currently 5 eggs in the nest box.

    Trying to keep it running 24/7, but freezes sometimes...
