A round up

The baby Blue Tits from the nest box are growing fast.
.

Even visiting on their own now, and feeding themselves. So good to see them doing well.
.
.
The young Starlings are visiting daily, and eating loads too.

.
Along with the adult birds, it gets quite noisy and boisterous.


So much fighting, and noise, while the Collared Doves look on in amusement.
.

.
Elsewhere, Pheasants are showing off
.

.
Wrens are feeding their young


Blue Tits are feeding their selves,
.


as are the Great Crested Grebes,
.
.
and baby Coots, are just, being……baby Coots.
.

I love this time of year.

  11. Thanks Phil. I was lucky with this shot. The Wren was nesting in a friends garden, so I could get some fairly close shots as they came to the nest. They were so busy coming and going all day.
