A juvenile house sparrow, requiring feeding!
My guess, next doors house sparrows have had a second brood, and they are starting to fledge.
Please can I have some more?
Lot to learn
After a much postponed trip to Bempton Cliffs here are some of the youngsters that were still about late in July.
Gannets on the Gannetry.
Gannet on the main cliff face with the Guillemots.
Young Guillemot on the sea.
In reply to gaynorsl:
gaynorsl said:Lovely photos Mike, I have known the spadgers here to have three broods in a season, something to do with the abundance of seed being offered I suppose!!
Thank you Gaynor
I doubt a third brood as yet, and they do have a good supply of seed, a hop over the garden fence and they're here, or, a quick dash across the road, there's a young couple who have a feeding station is is very heavily frequented with house sparrows.
A couple I overlooked, first year Gannets.
If you are going to visit this year guys don't leave it too long birds will start moving off the cliff next month
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
