The Young of 2019

  • You've got a great selection of youngsters in the garden. I guess the last little 'un is being gently persuaded to fend for itself :)

  • I think this still counts as a youngster of 2019, even though it was independent

  • Thanks Nige, I have one more from today - is this a young Bullfinch or a female?

    The male was on the next feeder so whatever this one is at least two appeared.

    That is what I call a cracking photo Nige, fabulous.

  • Thanks Gaynor
    Your Bullfinch is a female. Youngsters are more obviously brown (although it isn't easy to tell in the shadows) and they lack the well-defined black cap

  • Aha, great, then could be a chance for little ones even now, though they are leaving it late maybe. Thanks Nige.

  • More baby Spadgers being fed on low garden wall ... wish they wouldn't cos of marauding cats passing through
