Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

We have been very lucky to have a pair of starlings nesting in a hole in our hawthorn tree.

In fact, this pair have been returning for four years to the same nest!

The hole is not very high in the tree so we have placed wire around the trunk to prevent cats climbing as high as the nest.

Earlier in the year, the pair produced young but they fledged early in the morning and we missed them!

Fortunately, the starling parents have had a second brood and I was able to capture just a glimpse of one of them!

My photograph shows one of the parents returning to the nest with a tasty meal.

My w/s shows it just a moment later!

I sat quietly to capture this, free hand. If I make too much of an appearance, with tripod and camera, the birds become very agitated! Now that I have this shot, I may try again with a tripod, a little further from the nest.

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
