A cracking good day
We now have 8 eggs!!. After doing a little research, it turns out The Blue tit lays once a day and she has probably been hiding her eggs for some time. She decided to let us share her joy. We have also found out that none of the eggs will hatch until the Blue tit had completed laying all her eggs.
