Bluetit Diary 2011 -  May (2)

Monday 2nd May, 2011

No real change to the status quo today.

Here is a good view of Amy's 14 eggs - still all intact!
In Box2, Dave is being a good parent and frequently brings in food for the chicks.  Here he is with a small green caterpillar - the staple food of the chicks in this area where there are plenty of oak trees.
Although they started hatching yesterday, as the day begins Joy still has at least four unhatched eggs.
By the end of the day, this number may have been reduced to three.  At least only three eggs can be seen here.
Finally, in Box3, all Zoe's eggs are still intact.
