All hatching

The camera nest box has given lots of interest and a bit of worry, six of the nine eggs have hatched but there appears to be just the one adult feeding them, I assume it is the mother who had sat on the eggs. She seems to be working really hard to keep them fed, but two seem to have died. I understand that it really does need the two adults to maintain the level of food needed for a large nest, hopefully the female can look after these four.
   Outside the other boxes are hatching, the great tits have fledged and nine other nests have hatched.
   Perhaps the best news is three new nests have been built in the last week including a Pied Wagtail nest a short distance from the one that had its eggs stolen, so I assume it is the same pair.
