More eggs hatch

Wow, have those blue tits been busy! They started at about 5.20am this morning and were active up until about 8pm tonight! Over the day, the male has been bringing food all day, either to the female or to the tiny chicks. The female has spent some time off of the nest, also collecting food, but also incubating the two remaining eggs and keeping the other tiny chicks warm.  The chicks that hatched yesterday now seem to have a tiny amount of fluff on their heads and their gapes are clearly visable.  At the end of the day, I think I could just about see two unhatched eggs…. they may be the last ones to be laid, so hopefully they will hatch tomorrow. 

Here are some screen shots from today and some video will follow….
