  • I think Jackdaws seem to have more patience feeding their hungry, begging offspring than the magpies do ! Lovely footage Wendy.

  • I'm really sorry, i was way too slow to catch more than a wink and a tail feather from these little Goldcrest today, even more shameful they first sprang up at arms length. I'm just happy to report one family is up and running, and they are so tiny!

    At my nearby Wandlebury.
