Hatchlings


Returning from my craft weekend with Gemma I got the news that the blue tits eggs have started to hatch.  Three hatched over the weekend and one more yesterday.  They are bright pink, not very pretty with no feathers at all and have huge yellow mouths.  Old Blue and Lady are doing very well keeping all the babies very well fed.


Too well actually they are returning every few minutes with juicy caterpillars, ants and flies that the babies are very full.  Old Blue must be a first time father as he hasn't quite got the hang of feeding and tends to give the bugs to Lady to feed to the chicks, I'm sure he will get better with time.
