NestCam Update

At 5:40am this morning the Blue Tit was sitting on two eggs and still continuing to make improvement to the nest.  Anytime now I expect to hear the male calling outside and the female will then leave the nestbox for a while to feed revealing the eggs.  However, she does seomtimes seem to deliberately cover up the eggs with feathers, perhaps to keep them warm or just hide them whilst she is away, and so they may not be visible.

Keep watching as the clarity and colour of the video will improve as the light increases. At this stage there are still long periods of inactivity when the female is out feeding and so during some of these I'll replay video clips taken during the day.
