Fledgling Bank Holiday

Bank Holiday Monday morning was glorious with wall to wall Sunshine so Penny took advantage of a bit of sunbathing as well as keeping an eye on the bird feeders:

I was able to watch the baby Great Tits in their nest plus I was delighted when a few fledglings appeared in the garden. The first to be seen was a young Robin:

I can find my own food .....

..... but it's a lot easier if I just yell at mum and dad to feed me:

Where have those kids gone now....

Also visiting was a demanding Blackbird fledgling:

I'm trying for the record for the most seeds in one beak:

  3. Penny looks very contented there John.
    Good to see all those young birds around, but I'm sure the adult ones will be glad when they can fend for themselves.
