Blue Tit.

16:36 Back Garden:
Emptied the nest box that the Blue Tits had used. The nest as shown below being held by my small but capable assistant, was an interesting thing in its own right. It was a layer of what looked like different dry grasses with feathers in it.
There were no dead chicks in it so this would lend me to believe that the young Blue Tit I saw was probably the last to leave the nest.
