That seems to be the same with my birds :nod: . I was starting to get worried, so I was happy to see that all the food has vanished by the time I got back from work :D

Same here. My feeders have been very quiet while the sun was out. I guess it's easier for them to find active caterpillars, daddy long legs and the like. But when it cools down they're more likely to come looking for the birdy equivalent of a McDonalds drive through! :)

I've got a nice little family of 4 fledgeling blueys that come and visit together. Taking quite a while to get their adult colours. I thought they might have come through by now. I was wondering if they were a second brood but reading around it seems it's too much effort for them to have another set so they must just be a bit slow getting their colour.

Blue tits are single brooders. Their nesting has to coincide with the boom in caterpillar numbers in the spring. Any later and it's likely to fail.
