DescriptionThe blue tits have started bringing the fledglings down to the fat balls to feed. Though this year there seemed to be more initiative, and less stroppy teenager, as this one came down alone, and even the other sibling only took a couple of seeds from a parent before seizing the initiative. Last year I had 3 sat on the wire waiting to be fed by a harrassed parent. Glad to see these as the sparrows have been less in evidence. The sparrow fledglings have only just started coming down, pretty much as adults. Little in the way of visits from the blackbird fledgling, only one or two, though mum is still gathering nest lining for the next one. Some starlings, but all in all pretty quiet compared to previous years hatchings. Or maybe just seeing them less because I am here more.
