I've been following the progress of the bluetits in the nestbox for the Mooney program on Radio 1.
Its sad to see the following info on the website..
"Sometime between the hours of 11.30 pm Monday May 28th, and 3:30am Tuesday Monday May 29th, three of the remaining four blue tits in the nestbox died. Originally there were eight nestlings. Currently there is one remaining blue tit in the nest, fighting for life.
On the advice and with the help of Niall Hatch from BirdWatch Ireland, a decision was made to remove the dead nestlings in order to give the last remaining baby blue tit the best chance of survival. We are now on day 18 since the nestlings first hatched - blue tits normally take between 16 and 22 days before they fledge. "
Did anyone hear what happened?? Poor little dudes
