Watch The Birdie!

Watch The Birdie!

There are a lot of fledgeling birds in the garden now! It’s a cacophony of peeps, tweets and pips amongst the hedgerows.

The adult Blue Tits are teaching their youngsters to come to the overflow pipe for a quick drink. Some are getting the hang of it quicker than others!

The adults look pretty ragged, in fact the adult Great Tit is completely bald! Her young are still (noisily) in the nest. My lovely Coal Tit’s are really looking very sorry for themselves.

The Robins appear randomly from under the shrubbery to jump for flies and dig for worms. It was hard to get close to them today but I have some food-bribery to tempt them with tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜‰

They really are all such a joy to watch!

    • It’s lovely getting to see them ๐Ÿ™‚ Down at Wisley the adults are keeping the young well hidden in the foliage so it’s been difficult getting any photos of them there. The young blue tits here seem to have quite a curious nature so with a bit of patience I’m getting to see more and more of them and their antics.

  1. Wow Sarah! These are all amazing shots hon! You have captured them beautifully! Love them all! ๐Ÿ˜€ *hugs*

  2. Great photos Sarah. We had two fledgling blackbirds on our patio (a rather grand name for a very small space) hiding in the large pot of bamboo most of the time. Watching them trying to fly was amusing as they hadn’t quite got the hang of it! Both mum and dad kept coming back to feed them with mouthfuls of worm or dragonfly and causing no end of mess by scratching the soil out of the pots! Thankfully no cats around here or they’d have been someone else’s dinner.

    • Our blackbirds haven’t fledged yet but the adults have been very busy! They’re the most comical actually as you hardly ever see them fly. Have you seen any bald adults? Every time I’m out there watching the birds I think of Pixel following me round the garden. He was so funny! I kept telling him off for scaring away my subjects ๐Ÿ˜‰ xxx
