Nearly all fledged

Been a while since the last update and a lot has happened, the blue tits have fledged, but sadly one nest didn't, I found all 11 chicks dead inside, so presumably the parents were killed. The redstart nest was quickly made, 6 eggs laid. The box just behind the summer house gave us wonderful sightings of the parents daily. Now all fledged too, and before the pied flycatchers, which have just started, 2 nests gone, 3 still to go.
Pete the bird ringer has been down from the north to ring the pied flycatchers, and has stated this is the earliest date he has had to ring them in all his 42years of ringing, an interesting fact.

It is very sad to see that you have found 11 chicks dead which sounds very disgusting for me. I can't expect such thing by hatching eggs. Well, I wish best of luck for future hatching and nesting.
