I have a family of blue tits nesting in my box beside the kitchen window. The chicks are now quite vociferous.

The parents have been dutifully popping in and out, their tiny beaks containing soft insects and caterpillars.

However, in the last few days I have discerned that the frequency of the visits to the box, though regular, have lessened.

Are the parents endeavouring to coax their offspring out into the brave new world, by generating hunger?

I expect the chicks to vacate their snug home imminently.
