Hearing and seeing lots of young birds in the hedges and trees. The first two blue tit broods have fledged over the last couple of days.
The chicks in one of the later blue tit nests have died, they were very small, 2 dead and s unhatched eggs. The single egg in one of the nests has failed to hatch.
The Pied Flycatcher started to hatch on 28th May, and all four nests have now hatched.
Also a new nest has been built in the past week, possibly a Pied Flycatcher.
A sparrow, I think, has been building a nest in the box by our bridge since I first started checking my boxes on 13th April. I noted on 28th May the nest box was completely full of nesting material, but assumed the builder had failed to find a partner then this week on checking it, saw a bird fly from the nest and pleased to find 3 eggs.
