Mrs Blue Tit has been busy laying an egg a day and there are now six eggs in the nest. She has been covering the eggs with feathers during the day so you might not be able to make out the sixth.
Although she is roosting in the nestbox overnight she has not yet started incubating during the day so I would imagine at least one more egg will be laid.
Due to recent inclement weather I haven't been out birding and I haven't put out the moth trap either. The weather is actually dry, sunny and warm today (for a change) and it was heartening to see a male orange tip butterfly in the garden this morning!
