In my last post about our nestbox I gave credit to the male blue tit for nest building – WRONG! I have subsequently found out it is the female who does all the work, and then sets to laying eggs.

As you can see from the nestbox cam stills below she has been very busy!

Egg laying is an exhausting task, so no wonder she quickly settles down to a good night’s rest once it’s complete
