Brooding in Nesting Box #2 and Developments in Box #1

Brooding has begun (not too seriously...pretty much like in box #1), with 6 eggs. I wonder if more will come.

In box #1 feeding continues. The weather is gray so the hatchlings are huddling again. It is difficult to tell how many they are but I have a feeling that only 7 are there. Hopefully I am mistaken.

I will be away for a while, so unless the semi-"live" stream starts working again, I am afraid this blog will be silent for a few days.

The weather is not that great today, and the hatchlings are huddeled together, which is good. It rains a bit then stops but it is generally cloudy and windy with temperatures around 16°C, which is good.

Apparently it will be really sunny and hot next week, which I am not that happy about. Hopefully the temperatures inside the nesting boxes will not rise too much. I am considering building a roof extension for box #1 and a roof for box #2.

In the video below the female Great Tit is checking to see whether there is anything to be removed inside the nest (underneath the hatchlings). She did the same whilst brooding so as to turn the eggs around every max. 30 she is just keeping the nest clean.
