    Blue tits

    nothing to do with stalking but for the last 6 years the blue tits have nested in the same nest box in my back garden , both birds built the nest and both birds were seen until the chicks hatched but then and every other year one adult vanishes ? iv looked in my bird book and it states both parent birds rear but every year the job falls to one adult ? ok theres cats , sparrow hawks etc around but for this to happen every year ?

    A bird in the hand is worth two in a bush.

    Is it always the same sex that vanishes?

    If it's always the male, it's possible he has a second nest elsewhere, and is abandoning yours to go care for the chicks there. A number of hole nesters do this quite a lot (pied flycatchers most notoriously).
