Video and images captured using PikrellCam on a RaspberryPi Zero W. This box's build is described here.
This is a slide show of nest building and egg laying using a mixture of IR and visible light. The pinkish cast on the visible light is due to the lack on an IR-cut filter on the camera... I'll add one for next year.
Here are some of the images. Each one links through to a high res version.
Having looked at other blue tits nests, it seems that green tennis ball fluff is quite the 'in thing'. In this one is also rabbit hair, sheep wool, straw, moss and feathers from my neighbour's chickens...
|1st eggs laid on day 6|
|Day 9, egg in the sunshine, infra-red illuminated|
|Day 13, 8 eggs, incubating most of the time now|
Female being fed on the nest while laying (not incubating in earnest yet)
This one with the lights on
All seems to be going well, other what is probably a tick above her right eye. Goes with the territory in these parts...
