Here's the follow-up montage video from the BlueTit nest box located in Loughborough, UK. It takes us from the first egg hatching to the chicks fledging and leaving the nest.

There is a 'PG-13' edit of this video showing what happens to the chicks that didn't make it. You can find that here:

If you haven't seen the Empty Nest to First Egg video you can find it here:

As you'll see, several of the chicks didn't survive to fledging. There was a cold snap during the nesting period which could have had a bearing on the matter. Rest assured that the bird feeders were (and still are) well stocked. Like minded people with bluetit nest boxes in the UK left comments saying many of their chicks also hadn't survived through to fledging this year either.
The chicks hatched over a four day period, usually this would only be a two day affair. The final chick to hatch on day 4 didn't stand much of a chance compared to its siblings which were already much larger after 2 or 3 days of being fed.

The sharper eyed amongst you might have noticed that there isn't a day 15 or 19 in the video. This was due to a recording failure and a computer meltdown. The camera and computer had been streaming 24/7 for two and a half months and started to fight back!

The parents continue to feed the chicks in and around the garden and the chicks have not returned to the nest box. This is absolutely normal.
The white fluff in the nest is Sheep's wool.

Thanks lots for watching - hope you enjoyed it!

      @John Wick if you watch their latest video, it is them removing the dead chicks, and i think that is what it is.

      @John Wick could possibly be a dead fledgling that the mother or father removed to make space

      @Joe PortaThere's so many comments on here I can't find yours to view in context. You might have seen that this video has had over 12,000 comments. There isn't the time in the day to read and interact with all of them. Yours has popped up as an email notification as it was a reply to one of my comments. The majority of questions are answered in the description which no-one seems to check. Another of the videos has 24,000 comments so that's 36,000 across just two of the 80 videos on the channel. I realise that this might not satisfy you but it's the plain truth.

    I believe that birds experience time differently to us, I think this is the case for many small and shorter lifespan animals, I'm certain they experience time even slower than we do, you can see their quick robotic looking movements suddenly become very human and relatable when slowed to 0.5 speed, every glance and head movement makes sense. I can imagine what these small movements and gazes mean to each other, its simply stunning.
