So there maybe royal baby news today but we are especially excited in the studio  as we’ve spotted 4 perfect tiny eggs in the blue tit nest - they can apparently lay up to 16 eggs - 4 down 12 to go . I noticed the blue tit had taken what looks like sage leaves into the nest today . After a bit of research it appears that sage will ward of insects and acts as a natural  antiseptic for the chicks - isn’t nature amazing #isntnatureamazing #isntnaturewonderful #bluetit #nest #webcam #katemccgwire #katemccgwirestudio #birdsnest #birdbox #eggs #
