The Crane Fly - Tipula lateralis - busy apparently laying its eggs in the floating pond plants in my garden pond.
While I was filming the Crane Fly at one end of the pond a couple of House Sparrows landed on the waterfall at the other end and fortunately didn't notice as I turned the camcorder in their direction.
At the beginning of the week, when these were filmed, there were two or three fledgeling Starlings visiting to be fed.
Early this morning there were at least 15 youngsters all clamouring to be fed. It was interesting to note that they tended to stay in groups of three or four which were presumably family groups.
Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you. You never know what will turn up next.
How shall we manage?
