Springwatch

Springwatch Videos

Watch archive footage of blue tits and pond life from spring 2007

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.

Birdbox

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.

You can still watch some highlights of the blue tits this year by using the links on the top right of this page.

Pond Cam

Watch life underwater as our camera captured tadpoles, water lice, snails and shrimps in the pond.
