My baby blue tits have just left the box, the adults use the same nest box every year. Its said on spring watch, that parents feed their young around 52 times an hour, after watching them myself I can belive it.

We should put nest boxes up and try to encourage birds and wild life to our gardens. Lovely shot David.
