Young Coal Tits

One evening last week, my plan was to spend about half an hour by the pond watching and listening to the birds. The half hour turned into nearly one and a half hours as I lost track of time watching two fledgling Coal Tits exploring their surroundings whilst their Parents kept appearing with meals of various insects for them.

As the Sun started dropping towards the horizon one of the many Wrens that have also nested this year appeared in one of the Willow trees. Of all the birds we have in the garden, the Wrens have the boldest character and will allow us to get quite close to them and will continue singing from trees and bushes as we walk past.
