Bluetit Diary 2011 -  May (20)

Back to Box1 again!

Almost the first thing we saw when the system switched on in the morning was a chick looking out of the box.
At least there are still six chicks inside - we haven't missed any!
Another look out of the box.  Surely this chick will go soon?
In fact it was over 20 minutes later that chick number 2 flew the nest.
Away it goes!
Now there are five chicks left in the box.
Amy continues to look after the remaining chicks.  I hope she is also looking after the two chicks that have fledged!
Is this the next chick?
Yes!  The system nearly missed this one!
Four chicks left.
And that was the situation at the end of the day.  This shot was taken at about 8.20pm, just before we switched off for the day.

Will the remaining four chicks go tomorrow?
