First Day Out

My garden is full of LBJs - little brown jobs - and they sing all day long and I adore them.  This morning I saw one of our resident Magpies (grrrrrrrrrrrrr) take off with a young fledgeling and I was in tears... image

But, this afternoon these little fellas popped out of the tree one by one and I just had to get them with my camera.  Unfortunately they were in partial shade so the quality isn't great but what a lovely way to spend the afternoon.  And yes, I was in tears again....

 And finally - should I stay or should I go?  It took ages to decide.  Bless.

 Our bird food bill is going up by the second.

  • I need to get rid of a blackthorn hedge, I can't do it until the sparrows that are being raised there are fledged.  I'm waiting until I know they've definitely gone before getting my friend with a chainsaw around.

    Be patient.  Our resident sparrows can produce three broods in a good year so the last lot fledge very late.  I would wait till September if you can.

  • Crumbs!  I was thinking beginning of August, but September it is then.  A chap can't raise youngsters if his house has just been demolished!
