Day of the five eggs!

At last we can reveal, what has been up to now buried treasure, the blue tit eggs. She has been doing a very good job of hiding the first four eggs but when we switched the camera on this morning there they were- five eggs!

Five eggs. Four clearly seen and one catching the early morning sun.

As we sat in the sun yesterday we heard the female blue tit calling and the male duly arrived and they mated on a branch just above the bird box.

Three hedgehogs on the camera last night, the first time we had seen all of them together. No sign of the fox!
