A pair of blue tits nested in the bird box in the garden, about 3ft from the feeder and until this photo we had only heard the chicks cheeping. Obviously wanted to keep our distance so as not to disturb them. Was looking forward to seeing them fledge though only to wake one morning to find no noise of cheeping and bird box deserted. They must have snuck away... is this normal? My partner thinks they have another nest/safe spot outside the garden that he has seen the adults flying to and from. Recently the local magpies and all their relatives have been at the feeders a lot so was also wondering if this could've convinced the blue tits to move house?
