Day 12 - baby blue tits now have lots of feathers

I'm really taken aback at how quickly these little baby blue tits are progressing. It seems that every day they are getting bigger and it's really noticeable. The babies now seem to have what looks like a full set of feathers which they are starting to prune and look after. I also noticed that one of the baby blue tits was flapping its wings today which obviously means they must be getting pretty close to fledging. Mummy blue tit is spending the whole day along with daddy blue tit bringing back food on a constant basis, seems that these babies are forever hungry.

I'll be very surprised if they are not thinking about leaving the box within a week.

I'll keep you updated in two or three days time


I live on the south-west coast of England in a small town called Brixham.  I been confined to a wheelchair 1986 after breaking my neck in a swimming pool accident.  Computers are my saviour and I spend most days doing one thing or another on my PC.  Other interests I have include angling and amateur radio.  I also run a website and forum dedicated to looking after and caring for the Oscar fish cichlid
