Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,,

If you have seen my previous photographs, you will know that I have been watching the development of the nestlings in our garden tree.

My photograph shows one of the hungry nestlings demanding food!

However, the story took a twist in that one of the nestlings was later found running around on the lawn. It wasn't able to fly, just a little flutter, and had probably fallen out of the nest in its haste to get food. I show a photograph of it in my workshop.

It was extremely vulnerable to our neighbours cats!
We were unsure what to do!
At first, we kept watch but were unable to spend all day on guard!

It fell in the water of our pond and we had to save it!
At this point, we decided to capture the bird and return it to the nest!

Mummy starling made a lot of noise but then things calmed down.

The nestlings have had time to develop their wing feathers and will soon fly the nest!

Have a lovely Sunday, Bev :-)
