LOL Ann, great captions and all very apt when comparing to the photos. I've never seen so many birds in the garden, our various tit members have had a baby boom although smaller groups generally of around 7 or 8 chicks and probably a few of those disappear within days of fledgling, however, the ones that survive look pretty healthy stock with demanding attitude when it comes to food - you can hear them throughout the day chirruping up in the tall oaks and beach trees lol You should see it here in the morning when the first bowls of mealworms goes out - the birds descend from everywhere and it's like Charing Cross station as they nip in and out for supplies ! It's such a beautiful time of year, my favourite in the garden when I see all the new birdlife.
