Friday at the Flicks - Garden Snail - Juvenile Birds

I was partly wrong the other day when I said only slugs and snails like all the wet weather we have been having. I forgot to include the Blackbirds. They love it when the ground becomes waterlogged as it drives the worms to the surface!

Here is the snail I saw the other day:

There have been quite a few different fledgelings visiting the garden, usually with the adults:

Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you.


  1. I've got more than my fair share of snails here in the garden, despite a couple of hedgehogs visiting, and loads of frogs. Where do they all come from?
    Lovely video of the House Sparrow feeding the youngster. So gentle.

  2. I was struck by how gentle the Male House Sparrow was feeding the youngster.

  3. I completely agree with you and Keith, gentle is definitely the word, so sweet! I was only thinking the other day that after what must have been a real struggle for them in the last twelve months, the Blackbirds at least are reaping the rewards of all this rain. Excellent videos again.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
