Tuesday 8th May 2012 – Bird Box Update

Filed under: Great Plant Hunt,Whole School @ 8:52 am

All children and staff in our school are very excited by developments in the bird box over the last week.  The blue tit had been busy for over a week building her nest.  Then last Friday she laid her first egg and every day since then she has been laying an egg.  We now have an amazing seven eggs in the nest which she is now sitting on most of the time.  Mr Blue tit is constantly bringing her grubs and many of the children have watched in amazement as he feeds them to her.  We are so fortunate to have the camera in the box for all the children to witness such a close look at nature.

We now eagerly await the arrival of the chicks and, of course, we will keep you updated with their progress.

  7. You must have been taking a lot of care for the eggs.It would have been nice to see a picture of the bluetit but then she/he would have flew away. I think we should put more things to do nature on our blog for you to comment on.But please comment on our Bug Hotel post.It was really fun so it could do with someone to comment on it.
