Bluetit Diary    May 2019 (14)



Monday 20th May, 2019

You can see 9 chicks here if you look hard enough.  Again one chick is deep down in the bottom right of the nest cup.  Only its beak gives it away!

My estimate (again based on 20 days from hatching) is that they will fledge on Friday, which is in 4 days time.  They seem to spend most of their time these days in preening. 

Here's 8 chicks . . .

. . . and here's 9!

Here's a clearer picture of the 9 chicks - and Mum.
