Just a very quick post that I thought I would share with you all today.
Whilst we were away in Scotland our little Blackbird chicks fledged, but just as they have in previous years that don't seem too venture too far away from the garden for a while.
You can generally here either mum and dad or the fledglings call to each other from time to time.
I did wonder whether Mabel & Earl would have a second clutch as they did last year.
There has been a lot of activity around the Honeysuckle but as it's so big now I can't actually see the nest in there anymore to know whether they are on clutch number two or whether it's clutch number one that returns back to the nest every now and then.
Still I did have to chuckle to myself last night whilst in the den.
It was very quiet apart from the occasional calling of the wood pigeons when all of a sudden there was a commotion going on.
At first I thought it was the neighbours cat with a bird.
When I looked out of the window I saw this.....
At which point I thought 'see it's not just our kids that don't want to come in at tea time' even adolescent Blackbirds can turn into a 'Kevin'.
Hope you're all having a nice week.
