Having had daily visits to the feeders by Blue Tits since I moved in a few weeks ago it came as no surprise when the adult birds arrived at the end of May with four newly fledged chicks in tow. The usual frenetic activity with begging chicks and the parent working at full speed to keep them fed and also teaching them how to actually use the fat ball as a source of food. The chicks proved to be incredibly confiding and during the first couple of weeks fed from my hand. This continued with at least on individual coming into the lounge on a regular basis !
