Seven little mouths to feed in Abthorpe

Seven little mouths to feed in AbthorpeSeven little mouths to feed in Abthorpe
The appearance of our Abthorpe blue tits on the world wide web has been a huge success. Many people – local, further afield in the UK and abroad are clicking on the link to view the birds’ progress.
After the female and male had lined the thoughtfully provided bird-box tucked away in a corner of the village with feathers, moss and other garden detritus, seven eggs were laid around the 12th April. At this point a lady made contact saying she was worried that there was a problem with the camera as she was unable to access their web page. The Master of the Abthorpe Blue Tits  replied that he was not aware of any problems  but could she please be aware that I switch the service off late at night until 7-8-9am depending upon when I get up/remember to switch the service on.
All seven eggs hatched around the 3rd May and at the time of writing the parents are frantically providing food for the seven wide-open hungry mouths. The chicks are growing rapidly and surely it won’t be long before they fledge and flee the nest.
Another lady excitedly sent her thanks to whoever is in charge of the blue tit cam. She commented that she had been spending most of her days riveted to her computer watching our blue tits feeding and looking after their brood. Just wonderful!
