Great tit Rasvatihane Parus major
In nestbox no 1 with a webcam the chicks left on Friday last week or 4 days ago (Estonian original published 07.06.2016). On checking the nestboxes today it turned out that the great tit was building a new nest and that there were already 2 eggs in it! So she laid the first egg already yesterday, only 3 days after the departure of the clutch.
Quite likely the great tits that nest in the nestbox now are the same whose first clutch left from here a few days ago. But it cannot be excluded that this time we observe the nestingof a new great tit pair instead.
The camera of nest trunk 1 is here: LINK
