blues reds & more flowers


Yup, I took a lot of pics on that trip out

So much bird actvity in the garden just now. I couldn't sleep the other night so I was wide awake when the dawn chorus started at 3.30am - one of life's wonderful sounds. The best things in life really are free.



Mr P took a low quality video clip of the blackbird feeding the fledgling on the garage roof - so cute, the chunk of bread being offered is WAY too big so baby bird keeps spitting it back out - it went on for about 5 minutes - literally.

If you're wondering why I don't have more bluetit photo's it's cause they are too quick. I took 2 very short clips of one bird flying in to the bird box with caterpillars for the chicks and then out with equal speed. A wise move when Mr P's cat is lurking in the bushes as he often is.



Lots of you lovelies have left comments and I've tried to visit you all individually but I've also typed replies in the comment section for that post, so you may want to pop back into it for a look.

These little children-birds are so lovely, I watch them all day at the moment. Did you recognize that they only "cry" if their parent are in sight. If they are gone the little birdies shut up immediately ;)))children!!
lovely greetings and lots of energy!!!

yes they are so quiet. i can't see where they hide in the trees, then along comes mum and the shouting begins.

Those birds... they're notoriously tricky to capture, aren't they? Such fast, little movements.
see you, g
