The young of 2019

 This afternoon Mr Blackbird came into the garden with junior blackbird. First he fed him/her, then later on the young one was feeding on it's own. I took some photo's which I will upload

  • Hi Wren, I love your photograph and I chuckled when you put ‘Mr Blackbird’ because that’s what I call the male blackbird who nests in our hedge. I don’t think there are any little blackbirds fledging yet but I’ve had lots of sparrow fledglings and their parents who seem to be teaching them to use the suet ball feeders I put out in the mornings. I can see that I need to get a camera - my phone camera is not good; you can’t tell species apart when I try to capture a photo.
  • hi Jenny, it's wonderful when the new fledglings start appearing and great to see your young Blackbird; although our birds are all very busy feeding nestlings we have yet to see any fledge yet - so I live in hope it won't be long !!

  • There are plenty of young starling's(not fledged) opposite our house & a pair taking up residence  above our bathroom window, bringing in nesting material.

  • Had quite a few starling's, sparrow & blackbird today. Sadly the starling's who nested since Friday were last seen on Sunday at 1916. No idea as there was no crows around at that time.
