A juvenile crow came to bathe, and was determined to taunt the lapwings, that were not impressed with the intrusion!
As the lapwings moved away, the juvenile crow moved with them, to continue the bathe
The lapwings weren't impressed and moved again...
Lot to learn

gaynorsl said:Lovely captures Mike, the young Crows look so huge, the Lapwing might not have appreciated the free bath:-)
Thank you Gaynor.
It was just the one crow, and very likely the lapwings didn't fancy the prospect of a free bath LOL
On a recent visit to RSPB Conwy a trio of male tufted ducks, most likely this years juveniles
I think this one just about makes it into the juvenile category. Just a few more days, I imagine and he will be in full adult Blackbird plumage absolute joy to watch in the garden and the colours encouraged me look closer on several occasions
Probably a last posting from here for this thread, a juvenile hedgehog pays the garden a visit, hopefully now tucked up in bed for winter, and not someone's bonfire.
