Fledgling Great Tits- the three remaining young in the bird box seem absolutely ready to leave. Sometimes you can only see one or two because they bury themselves inside the nest! Increasingly they are stretching and fluttering their wings in preparation to fly out. These seem well ahead of the fledgling Tits on Springwatch! Away for a few days, I’m sure to miss the moment! Conditions- Heavy cloud and light rain. Temperature: Max 13- Min 10c.
