Have a nest in the garden in a blue tit box,they are very active at the moment and I noticed a few dead small ones on the ground then saw a male and female mating which these are the photo's of them.I read that the male dies after mating so maybe that is why there are a few dead small ones about.They mated for about 15 minutes the male flew off but the female took about 5 minutes before she flew off.
