Talkback: Cleaning out bird boxes

Cleaned out our 2 boxes just now. Revealed the tragedy of the sodden Spring and early Summer. The remains of a Blue Tit brood in one and the remains of a Great Tit brood in the other. Not enough caterpillars to keep them alive - the different stages of development at which the chicks died suggesting lack of food and gradual starvation.

What a miserable job - resolved to feed mealworms from first hatching if weather bad next year. IF???????
