Hello Mike. Glad to hear that you are back with us.
This morning, between 12.30 am and 4.30 am, our bluetit family of four hatched. We can watch them via a camera link. Ma bluetit and pa bluetit are now feeding their young every few minutes - one aphid at a time.Each aphid is a complete mouthful for the little ones who fall over backwards with the effort of swallowing them.
If we could only see things on that scale all the time, I am sure we would be less ready with the spray guns.
