So excited to see no fewer than 8 baby long tailed tits - all huddled together on a branch at Lackford Lakes (near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk)
... and then there were 6!
PS how do I get my photos to display full width rather than about one third of the editor box width, please?

Welcome to the world of Brex-tit little one !!!!!
What big feet Curlew chicks have.
In reply to Gardenbirder:
Gardenbirder said:Bob, We heard another story today about the Peregrines at Symonds Yat Rock. A certain bird of prey person told us that the male, thought to be from that nest, had been shot last autumn and taken to the nearest bird of prey hospital where it died after 2 days. Both stories might be true, or not (who can say?) but it might involve a new male, perhaps. Hope we meet another volunteer on another day to hear the real (or another?) story. I still think if the Geese story is true that it would sound a bit more plausible if the Geese were Egyptian Geese, but again, just speculation.
Dont forget Chepstow

If it were a dog, big feet = big dog!
Nice pic, as with the others, particularly the lapwing.
