Long story short. Our 10 egg nest lost 9 of its hatchlings in the 1st week due to absence of adult male and dreadful weather. Adult Male unbelievably returned when the last remaining nestling was 11 days old. Fed it lots of caterpillars for 4 days. Looked vigorous last night. But we think it choked on lots of fresh nesting material brought in by female and then suffocated last night. Just a wee corpse this morning and 2 confused parents. Not joyful viewing this year!

..or so, among some 60 nest boxes checked, with others hosting Great Tits, but most broods fairly small (3 or 5 typically).

21/05/21Blue TitBracknell2D A MacKenzie Dodds
A week ago ten eggs hatched in our camera box. Since then, a combination of errr... Mediterranean weather and an absent adult male has meant we've seen 8 of the 10 starve and be removed from the nest. We're down to 2 now. Not sure if they'll last the weekend.  
16/05/21Blue TitBracknell6D A MacKenzie Dodds
Wow. I knew the brood was up against it but I hoped it would be better than this. Lost 4 hatchlings today. On only their second full day out of the egg. Only the adult female is feeding them despite the Male (we think) being in the area. Dreadful weather. Taking a terrible toll already. At this rate one or two eventual successful fledglings will be a massive success.  
15/05/21Blue TitBracknell10D A MacKenzie Dodds
9th egg hatched at 0220am & 10th and final egg hatched at 09:30am. Up against it...this brood. Adult female (and nest now) covered in Proctophyllodes stylifer. Adult male seemingly uninterested in helping much at all with parental care (yet). Chronic poor weather. Magpies already checking out the nest. Fledging day (if they get very lucky) perhaps 1st June.  
14/05/21Blue TitBracknell8D A MacKenzie Dodds
Looks like it's hatching day today in our camera nest box. Exactly 14 days after proper incubation started. The count on this entry may change today. Ten eggs were laid in total.
