The Young of 2021 share your photos here

  • In reply to Mike B:

    Great set of action shots Mike and good to see plenty of young Starlings. Down here in Suffolk we've had more Starlings in our garden than previous years and Goldfinches and Greenfinches as well. The Great Tits and Blue Tits are making up for lost time and there's lots of their fledglings at the feeders as well.
  • Got a photo of all of the blue tit chicks enjoying some suet on my trail camera!

  • A young pied wagtail yesterday in the peaks.

  • Got some Juvenile Goldfinches visiting my feeder.

    Sure is, we had trouble with them shuffling up the post, then we added the pot, and they climbed up the tree and dive bombed out of branches onto the top, now its out in the middle of the lawn and we haven't seen anymore.

    I know that scenario well.

    We have a lampshade to thwart and ascents up the feeder pole, but one has managed to jump from the ground, over the lampshade and straight on to the small feeding dish!

    I'm still hoping for video, but the trailcam isn't getting triggered quick enough.

    They also leap from the nearby trees, and I've no hop of thwarting that, the garden isn't wide enough...

    The YouTube link shows they keep trying....

  • Things in the garden are slowly quietening down now many of the youngsters are managing to feed themselves.

    On a recent trip to Middleton Lakes, the young are fast growing up, and getting around quite well.

    Juvenile black headed gulls, and unusually quiet!

    More youngsters, the Canada Geese Group Outing....

    The Tufty family, well, mum and two sprogs....

    Plop! One decides to take a dip

  • This one came through my garden yesterday. Very young and I presume has just left it's mother. Very active, looked healthy (not that I know anything about hedgehogs) and looking for food amongst the leaves. I did think it was odd being out mid-day but not sure if that is usual for young hoglets finding there way. Be interesting to hear thoughts for future reference.
