Throwback Thursday

Leaving the Nest

My Throwback Thursday post this week is a young Eurasian Blue Tit leaving the nestbox.

I documented the complete nesting cycle using a specially constructed nestbox in spring 1987. 10 of the 11 young leave the nestbox in the early morning. The 11th youngster left the nestbox early the next morning.

Throwback Thursday: 4th June 2020

The ninth youngster leaving the nestbox, only two left.
