Friday at the Flicks - Hungry Hedgehog, Jackdaw, Fledgeling House Sparrow

I seem to have been neglecting the Hedgehog visits recently so here is a short clip taken a few nights ago.



Jackdaws are regular early morning visitors at the moment but they normally disappear as soon as they spot the slightest human movement. This one seemed to be oblivious and may well have been a youngster.



Feeding the youngsters is in full swing here with Starlings and House Sparrows all bringing their offspring. Here I concentrated on a fledgeling House Sparrow.



The nesting Great Tit is continuing to take great care of her eggs, constantly turning and adjusting their position. The male continues to bring food for her.

STOP PRESS: The first two chicks have just emerged from their eggs.

If you want to watch something completely different then, at the time of writing, the latest EVA from the International Space Station can be watched live HERE

Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you..

    I love that little Sparrow, and the way he carefully got a drink.
