Hi all, hope you are all enjoying the sunshine ! Thought I'd share a few photos of this lovely Chough family with their 2 youngsters and also a few from walks over the last few weeks.
Chough youngster sunning itself
whilst poor mum and dad look for food !
The Kestrel pair I have been watching have 5 youngsters and doing well, they have just started to look out of the nest hole especially when they hear mum or dad calling
Stonechat with an enormous meal !
and a young Swallow
and a gorgeous juvenile Whitethroat
and a pair of Silver Studded Blue Butterflies
and can anyone ID this insect for me?
Best wishes , Jayne
