I'm guessing, this is one of this years youngsters, it behaviour is very different and still very playful, and, very twitchy at loud noises.
The air ambulance flew overhead as it was on the feeder, which startled it, the older ones just carry on feeding, and it did make for some interesting pics.
Apologies for the poor quality pics, they were taken through the kitchen window in poor light conditions, so took a bit of cleaning up.
Leaping off the feeder to the fence!
Catching its breath and allowing the heart rate to settle back down....
And weeeeee, back to the feeder for more nosh.....
