The Great Tits Story

Part 1 The Sequel

last year we saw for the first time a family of tits bringing up their chicks. This year they are back and better than ever! (well not actually, I was just being dramatic like xfactor). Follow the journey with the upcoming videos. Here is the first of many. enjoy day 2 Day 3 number 4 no. 5 Clip 6 clip 7 clip 8 clip 9. The Hatch! the camera went wrong for two days and by the time I managed to kick start it, all the eggs had hatched....except one! 10 the spider and the fly!! 11. Bigger 12 13 14.  I count 8!! 15. I can only count 7! 16. I counted 8. did you? 17 18 19 20. they're busting out! I counted 8 again. 21.Tits are flopping out! 22. Me first!! 23. one of them should be on x factor! 24 26. there is no clip 25. 27. so bye bye miss you great tits go fly........ sorry I missed them going. they went too early this morning, or I looked too late! Well that's it for this season unless they come back for a second brood. If you want to see the fledglings leave the nest, I captured it last year.

I wish more people could see this remarkable journey! How wonderful is nature/nurture!

Fantastic video’s, great story, thankyou for giving us the chance to see it. How hard is it to set up a camera in a nest box?

I cheated. it’s a box that’s bought already with a camera in it!

Aha!! didn’ think of that!
Looked it up and basic cmera you can link to your tv is approx £27.

I wonder if you could use it to keep an eye on babies in the incubator?

Till next time we see you…..
