Science on Sundays – Raising a brood in the Botanic Garden: The trials and tribulations of blue tits and great tits

Dr Julia Mackenzie, Anglia Ruskin University - pre-recorded talk

The breeding success of blue tits and great tits has been studied for over 15 years in the Cambridge University Botanic Garden by scientists from Anglia Ruskin University. The Garden, being full of trees and plants appears to be a great place to raise a brood of chicks, but all is not as it seems. The parent birds often struggle to find the caterpillar food needed by their nestlings, lay fewer eggs and have fewer young fledge the nest when compared to their woodland counterparts.
