This is the live video feed of the Bluetit nestbox.

Click on the play button to watch what the Bluetits are up to.
If you are watching on a tablet or mobile phone, the live stream is better using the  mobile version of AssemblyTube. and then visiting the Staffroom/Videos for Staff.

If you see any activity by the Bluetits, please click the "Reply" button at the bottom of the page and let everyone know what you have seen.
Thank you.

Sorry about the advert from Ustream. Can't get rid of it on PCs.
(The adverts don't play on tablets or phones  :D )




You can make the video fill your screen if you hover over it and click the arrows.

Tuesday 19th March 2013.
Just started broadcasting the live feed. This will be the 4th year in a row that Bluetits have used this nestbox. The first pair nested in March/April 2010. Each year there are usually about 10 eggs, but only about 4 chicks normally make it to fledging.

The Bluetits have been cleaning up the nest for about 2 days. They take out bits they don't like, and add some soft down feathers. By twirling round and round in the nest they make a bowl shape in the middle.

They have been eating seeds from a feeder in the garden.
When I say "they", I am not sure if there is a pair yet. I have only seen one Bluetit in the nextbox at any one time so far, and all Bluetits look very much alike.

Who will spot the first egg?
Please reply to these messages if you see the Bluetits doing anything.

Last Year in the Nestbox
In 2012 the Bluetits were live on AssemblyTube from egg to fledging.
This video shows the last day of their time in the nestbox in April 2012.
Watch the chicks leave. Nestbox exit hole is at bottom of view.
At the moment a chick flies off, sun shines into the nest box (top of the view).
Watch the reaction of the remaining chicks as each chick has just left.


The chicks spent a few days in the garden with their parents before flying off.
Are the new 2013 visitors last year's chicks or last year's parents? I wonder.

Sunday 12th May 2013
The female is now incubating the eggs. Still 6 eggs.
Every now and then the male arrives to give her some food.

The live video feed of the nestbox is at the top of this list of posts. Scroll up to view.

Just saw the male Bluetit arrive with some food, and pass it to the female.
Relaxing to watch in the background whilst doing my work. Thanks.
