Female Chaffinch feeding chick
Female feeding it's young with some seeds, this cute little chick would shake its head rapidly when it saw it's Mum coming with the seeds. It's the first time I've seen a Chaffinch chick being fed in our garden.

We have been observing a Song Thrush nest in our garden for the last 3-4 weeks, this babe is one of 4 that have fledged.
Song Thrush and young fledgling
Thrush fledgling begging for more food. We've had a Thrush nest and 4 young in our garden over the last few weeks, it's been lovely to watch their progress.

Fledgling being fed some snail by adult, this is 1 of 4 young that we've had hatched in the garden recently.
It's now 5 days after leaving the nest, the fledgling mostly sits in the trees doing short flights, and waits for the next worms to be delivered!
