Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire on the 3rd June 1987. Yes I know I’m a day late.
This is the end of the story of the nesting Eurasian Blue Tits photographed using a specially constructed nestbox in a Cheshire garden. The previous two Throwback Thursday posts were also detailing this nestbox.
The ninth young Eurasian Blue Tit about to take its first flight leaving just two young in the nest.
The eleventh youngster couldn’t get up the nerve to leave and spent the day in the nestbox being fed by an adult occasionally. The following morning one of the adults was outside calling to encourage it to leave, which it did.
