    I have a camera in a nest box. When blue tits started nesting i was delighted. Then a pair of great tits showed an interest and starting bringing in nesting material. The blue tis seemed to win the range war, and started laying eggs. One egg appeared a lot bigger, and now the 7 eggs have all hatched one of the babies seems a lot bigger than the rest! Is it likely that the great tit had laid an egg before the blue tits started? My camera is only black and white. so unable to ascertain the eggs colour.

    Delighted that Nick mentioned cleaning feeders, and in a graphic way that people might hear! I gave him a big cheer! What's the point of trying to help birds, if the area is filthy and passing on disease?

    Two points I have a problem with:-
    a) I was always told that it is a bad idea to feed the birds with nuts when they are breeding because if they feed them to their young, they could choke or not digest them!
    b) Showing someone tapping with a stick to find nests may give ideas to some people who are more destructively minded than nature lovers!
    Other than that, I thought the program was a great addition to Springwatch

    Good programme shame about Nick -he is either nervous or unconvincingly enthusiastic and thinks he is talking to children rather than a mixed audience. Hope his wife appreciated his comment on the best thing she ever did was to have married him. Great item about bird feeders but no mention of providing clean drinking/bathing water. Lets hope he calms down tomorrow as he clearly does have a wealth of info to share.
