New life in the garden

When Boggy mentioned the other day there was a nest in one of the trees I didn't take much notice.

On Sunday he came in and said there was a bird sitting in it if I wanted to go out and take photos. 

I never noticed it before, it's at head height tucked away in the fork of a tree, right next to a garden path.




Mother bird flew out of the nest when the kids came around being noisy, revealing three(I think) little babies.

    1. They are not making much noise at the moment, and are far enough away from the house. Our rooster starts crowing about then!

    1. It was a bit cute. Don't see little babies like this very often, they are usually too high up in the trees.

    1. She did come back. I love the way she sits there with her head up in the air, keeping them warm. They have gotten more feathers since Sunday but they're beaks still look too big for their little bodies!
