Blue Tits Successfully Fledged – 2022

In my last post about the Blue Tits the parents were dashing backwards and forwards feeding their young. Well, now they’ve gone. A couple of days ago, it was apparent that the youngster (I never saw more than one) was preparing itself to depart and its parents were sitting some way away calling to it but not coming to the nestbox to feed it.

This video gives the last view that we had of the young one and all we can hope is that, having survived this long, it gets established and will survive long enough to bring up its own family in the future.

Slightly interesting (to me anyway) is that looking back through my pictures and videos, I found a sequence very similar at the same time in 2014.
