|The blue tit setting up home earlier this spring|
Our live video footage has now come to an end. You can still watch some highlights from BBC London's Springwatch coverage by using the links below.
After laying four eggs the blue tit abandoned its nest. Experts at Chelsea Physic Garden think local parakeets may have frightened the blue tit away.
Staff at the Chelsea Physic Garden will leave the nest alone as it is actually illegal under bird protection law (DoE Licence WLF1000068) to clean out nest boxes during the breeding season (1st February to 31st July) in case active nests are inadvertently disturbed.
